A few questions coming up and please note that there may be delays between replies if i have to gather various info ;

You are talking about wireless headphones and a base transmitter here , is that correct ?

And i take it that it does not have an optical input port ?

it does not have a optical input

OK then but it does have analog 3.5 mm input and perhaps RCA left right inputs as well ?

Do you have a cable or satellite box ?

ok

You will need a digital to analog audio converter if you want to connect to optical on the tv

Look at this link for such a device , many models there , just click on it; https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_1_24?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=digital+to+analog+audio+converter&sprefix=digital++to+analog+audio%2Caps%2C207&crid=32Z6PKWZOY9WG

You will need an optical cable as well

This will sit between the tv`s optical out and your transmitter , it converts the digital optical to analog for your transmitter

Your local bestbuy , walmart , radio shack etc. may have that as well.

If that answers your question PLEASE DO TAKE THE TIME TO RATE by clicking on the star icons at the top of your page, then click on Submit , it doesn`t cost you anything more and I get paid for my time helping you .
Also note that it will not close this post , you can come back here at any time (no additional charges) if you have questions or need further help.
