Optical audio out issues (headphones?)
I cannot be the only one with this problem. Recently we bought a Samsung Series 5 (N5200) TV which ONLY has a optical audio out. There is no other way to get audio out to a peripheral other than this optical plug. No problem right? I'll just buy headphones with an optical audio plug. They don't exist. You have to buy a converter. Two failed attempts at converters later and I'm ready to throw this TV out on the street. Even willing to get a sound bar that has an RCA or 3/4 inch plug to jack my headphones into and they apparently don't exist either.
I'm looking for a solution, there must be one. If you tell me to get a converter (again) please tell me with one's you know work because so far I've tried these two (below) and neither of the converters work. I know the optical out on the TV works because I do have a sound bar (sans headphone jack) which DOES work.
