Samsung UE5500 - Connecting wireless headphones via RCA

Hi guys,

My aunt has this tv and she recently purchased some wireless headphones. They work fine through the 3.5mm headphone jack.

However, they come with a 3.5mm to RCA (red and white) cable which on most tvs allow them to be plugged in so the volume on the tv and headphones are independent of each other. Unfortunately, this tv doesn't seem to support audio through RCA.

Would a simple 3.5mm to female RCA solve this? Or would the sound cut out the minute the adapter is plugged in, just like headphones.

Hope I've made sense.

Thanks

Yes it would.
The only way to get both the TVs speaker and the wireless headphones working is to use the TVs digital optical audio out with a D/A audio convertor which cost around £15-£25 and will have RCA phono out.
