TV Headphone Jack Questions

My questions relate to a future purchase consideration.

If I plug headphones into a TV with a headphone jack, will the TV's
internal speakers cut out completely ?

Will I still be able to control headphone volume with the TV's volume control ?

This may depend on the make/model of TV, however, most TVs do mute the TV speakers when you insert the HP jack and yes, the volume control will then control the HP volume (often with the HP volume being remembered separately and having a distinct volume icon for HP).

My Sony and my father's Samsung both work this way.

Reply noted (thanks 57). A friend intends to send the HP output to a good 3-pc set of
computer speakers (L,R,subwoofer). He figures that this will give him better audio than
the TV's internal speakers. The TV in question also has analog audio out, but this would
require an additional amplifier and another pair of speakers.
