    Solved! Panasonic Viera to Toslink to Bluetooth Headphones

    Hello, I have a Panasonic TC-L37U22 TV. I bought a Toslink bluetooth transmitter to work with the digital audio out jack on the TV (the only audio out available). I can pair the headphones to the transmitter, but the sound isn't transmitting. Any thoughts? Many thanks.

    Audio coming from PC. The best option.

    To put this as simply as I can, I'm trying to get the best audio I can from my PC. Is there a difference between HDMI audio to TV, then ARC out to receiver, and HDMI audio out to TV > optical to receiver? Or should I not do any of that and send audio from PC via optical directly to receiver?
