I purchased a MDR-DS6500 digital surround headphone system.

Customer Question
I purchased a MDR-DS6500...

I purchased a MDR-DS6500 digital surround headphone system. Will it be possible to use it with my Panasonic TC-P42S30 TV? I don't think the TV has an optical input jack.

Technician's Assistant: How old is your TC-P42S30?

Probably 6 or 7 years old

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

I don't know . Should I go try it?

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your TC-P42S30? What happened right before this?

I just bought the earphone system. I've not needed an optical input before

TV does have Optical Out port at rear and this wireless headphone will work with TC-P42S30 TV.
