I have a new LG 55LE5400; many of the features of this HD LED tv are great, but a audio output to feed a hearing aid loop is critical to me. I was prepared for not having an analog audio output by having a optical to analog converter box; now i find this box only works with some programming. it is ok if the TV input is analog but if i am receiving a DT input OTA there is no audio from the converter. The LG customer service tells me I must have an LG audio system to guarantee that the digital optical output will work. anyone know what might be going or have a recomendation for getting analog audio from this set? I would use the headphone jacks but when you plug in a headphone the speakers are disabled.
