I have a Samsung UN55H6300 TV and a Sony STR-DN840 AV receiver. I'm trying to connect a pair of Sennheiser RS175 RF headphones. Since I'm using the Sony receiver for my sound, the Samsung TV is set to "receiver", which means no audio is available at the TV ports on either the optical or Audio Out connections. With those options not available, how do I connect the headphones to the receiver? Thanks.

Thanks. Yeah I could do that but then we lose the good sound for everyone else. I'm wondering if I could wire in a 3.5mm connection to possibly the center channel speaker connection, on the receiver, unless someone comes up with a better solution.

Hmm. Sounds like you're suggesting to use the optical out on the TV for the audio being sent to the AV receiver vs. the HDMI cable?

You just hit the jackpot! I did not know these devices existed. By extracting the audio from the HDMI cable and then outputting it to an optical or audio output, this will fulfill my needs. Thank you very much.
