I have LG TV (Model # 47LW5700) with only one Optical Digital Audio Output, I want to connect wireless headphones to TV and still be able to hear the TV speakers. Voulme needs to be louder with headphones for one person, and sound from TV lower for the other person.
 
If the TV will let you leave the internal speakers on with the optical output active then you connect a bluetooth transmitter to the optical input and pair your headphone with it.
If the TV won't let you do that then you will need to split the optical output, connect both a soundbar and the BT transmitter to that.
You will need to set the optical output to PCM stereo in either case.

i have a 49" LG TV and i know there is an option in the sound settings on mine that allows you to use both the optical out plus the internal TV speaker. but i don't beleve this will work if you plug anything into the headphone jack on the TV

Thanks for taking the time to post an answer - actually found just what you have suggested yesterday after searching around and found this which I think is one of the best out there - allows optical pass through the bluetooth transmitter to a sound bar and allows headphones and sound bar to be on the same time - if you know any that are better I'd appreciate it if you can share the details
