I didn't finish question description. There is another input onthe tv set an optical audio which i couldn't try because i think it needs a converter. I will get the full model number for you after i send this
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

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

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

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

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?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

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.

need link. Will the converter plug into the LG 's red and white inputs?
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

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:

https://jet.com/product/detail/7580a254ded3451abc62a77cd819bed6?jcmp=pla:ggl:electronics_a1:electronics_accessories_audio_video_splitters_switches_a1_other:na:na:na:na:na:2&code=PLA15&k_clickid=e5bfdd32-2690-4387-b59c-cc7d74cb5cde&abkId=403-1734&gclid=CjwKEAiA27G1BRCEopST9M39gykSJADQyqAlFnWUQP0A9ZCpm5-HBc3L5bd23nLqX_AMqky3UhGeKhoC0u3w_wcB

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.
