I have a 42" Panasonic Viera TV Mod TH-42PZ77U and I now need to connect headphones to it to be able to listen to programs. The Panasonic Quick Start Guide I have makes no specific mention of headphone connections.

My headphones cable has a single 1/4 inch plug but I can’t find a jack or socket for it on the back of the TV. The only two spots marked for Audio Out are “Digital Audio Out” and “To Audio Amp Prog Out R & L”. Everything else is marked for Input. My questions are:

1- Can I use a RCA adapter and connect my headphones to Audio Amp Prog Out R & L on the back of the TV

2- Do I also have the choice to use the same adapter but connect my headphones to Audio Out R & L on the back of my 4250HD Cable Box

If your TV doesn't have headphone or external speaker jacks, you'll need to use a small amplifier plugged into the audio amp output.

You can technically connect your headphones to the L/R RCA connetion with a Y adapter, but then controlling the headphone volume level will be problematic.

A couple of options are to use either a headphone amp, or you can buy a cheap/used AVR which has a headphone out.

Plugging directly into the RCA connectors might not result in suitable audio level. Those connections are designed for much higher impedances than commonly used headphones.

you can get amplified / cordless headphones that accept a line-level input, you can hook these up directly to the RCA analogue lineout plugs on the back of any rogers box.
