internal tv speakers and headphones
My setup is tv (set to "external speaker) optical audio out to an optical splitter going to a soundbar and a digital convertor box to stereo headphones.
My tv does not output to the optical audio out when the internal speakers are used.
My dad wants to get his headphones working with his tv and also use the internal speakers.
I am going to see if his optical out works with the internal speakers but I'm guessing it won't so any other ideas to get headphones working with his tv?
His tv has built-in Netflix so an HDMI audio extractor won't work (I don't think).
An HDMI switch with an optical out to a digital convertor box to stereo headphones and a Netflix box (Roku?) OR a setup like mine (soundbar, etc) are the two options I see.
I hope someone knows of an inexpensive solution.
