Jack :

Hi and thank you for using justanswer.

Jack :

I`m going to help you with your setup but first i will have a few questions;

Jack :

Do you have a volume control on your headphones/headsets ?

Jack :

What kind of connector(s) is there on the headset transmitter/base ?
Rca x 2 type of connectors ?

JACUSTOMER-4uurx2jy- :

Volume control YES, but has no effect

Jack :

O.k the reason i was asking is because the analog audio output on your tv at fixed volume.

Jack :

Do you have the 2 rca type connectors on the base of the headset ?

Jack :

I mean the cables that will connect to the tv ?

JACUSTOMER-4uurx2jy- :

Two connectors, one for the recharging of the batteries in the headset, one to plug into the tv. Will only fit into the one receptacle. the pc in AUDIO

Jack :

o.k that is a 1/8 " mini phone connector.

Jack :

Be right back

Jack :

Unfortunately it would seem that your set has no headphones connector.
So the only way to connect your headset would be through the audio out jacks at the back.

Jack :

That would mean an adapter between your 1/8 " phone plug that would go to 2 rca type connectors.

JACUSTOMER-4uurx2jy- :

Which means that I have to get an adapter plug to fit?

Jack :

Yes thats right.

Jack :

If you can wait a minute i will find an example.

Jack :

Full Size Image
Here is a picture;

Jack :

That probably could be found at radio shack or walmart.

JACUSTOMER-4uurx2jy- :

OK I got the picture, now where do I purchase this item.

Jack :

As i said above this can be found either at walmart or radio shack or any place that sells electronics

Jack :

It would connect at the back of your tv in the terminals just below the square optical output

JACUSTOMER-4uurx2jy- :

Thanks but I was looking for a much more simple fix than this. I am not entirely satisfied with the answer. I don"t believe it is worth the $17.00 I am being charged.

Jack :

I`m sorry but there is no other fix than that in this case
This is as simple as it will get.

JACUSTOMER-4uurx2jy- :

OK

Jack :

O.k then and let me know if you have any other questions.

JACUSTOMER-4uurx2jy- :

I am shutting down the computer I am not real happy.

Jack :

I downloaded the owner`s manual and researched the options to reach that conclusion.
