I wear hearing aids and stream TV via a personal loop. The streamer connects to TV via Optical (Toslink). My Sony soundbar connects to TV via HDMI (only has Optical out). HDMI & Optical together cause hearing aid interference on certain channels. I have an optical splitter and need to take a lead from splitter to a (box) that will convert that signal to HDMI and plug a n HDMI lead into the soundbar so others can enjoy TV.
