Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m Jack Perhaps I can help you with this problem , let me know when you`re ready ?Also , could you please give me the tv`s full model number ?
No problem and i can tell you that you would not be able to use the optical port for the internal apps anyway , with or without converter
No sound wil come out of the optical port on any tv`s when the built-in apps are used , only the HDMI ARC and analog audio , this has to do with the HDCP protect scheme , it cannot be monitored through optical so it gets cut off
What size is that tv ?
Is it 43 or 49 " for example could that be a 49UF6400 ?
I`m sorry but i will have to opt out now.
You don`t have to do anything , your question will be reposted for other techs. to see and jump in.
Hello, My name s Aric- different expert here. To use these headphones to get the APP sound from the TV you need an HDMI converter. The apps only output from the HDMI ARC port. That's how LG sets are designed. To do this you need a converter, do you want a link to this part?
The optical out on the TV only works with sources connected to the TV- NOT the built in apps. If you use the HDMI ARC port- then ALL sources will output to the headphones. But since your headphones don't accept HDMI, then we need an HDMI to optical "extractor". I can give you a link to that, as it is your ONLY solution to get sound from the TV's apps, but let me know what type of assistance you are looking for here please.

No the converter plugs into the HDMI port labeled "ARC" on the TV. ARC is the "Audio Return Channel" and actually sends audio OUT to external devices, as well as HDMI In to the TV.
The converter is at the link below:
Then use the optical from the EXTRACTOR to go to the headphones. Don't use the optical on the TV at all in this case. The extractor will make ALL TV audio run through the headphones.
