I would like to use a bluetooth headset with my Samsung Smart TV (model UN49MU7000F), without disabling the soundbar (model HW-M450). Most solutions I've read about involve splitting the HDMI and/or optical signal from the TV, but I'd like to use the TV's bluetooth system.
I was able to enable the "Multi-Output Audio" output accessibility feature of my Samsung smart TV, pair a set of Bluetooth headphones with the TV, and independently control the volume of each audio output device--headphones and soundbar. The headphones volume is controlled with switches on the headphones themselves while the soundbar volume is controlled with its IR remote. Yeah!
