Default New TV, no RCA out :(

Hi guys,

I bought a new Samsung TV the other day; it has RCA input but no RCA output.

I have some wireless Sennheiser RS170 headphones that connect via headphone jack or RCA output. The headphone jack works fine but mutes the tv speakers, so every time l'm not using them have to remember to unplug them (on the back of a 46" tv!)

However, connecting via RCA, I can leave them plugged in and works ok.

Anyone know how I can get RCA output on the tv, if at all? I seen some scart to RCA output adapters, would this work?

if you had a receiver amp you could plug the rca in to that, or I believe if the TV has an optical output (should have) you can get a converter to change the optical out to an rca.

sorry to say but most new TVs only have an optical out these days to run audio to a sound bar or amp.

you can get a two rca to a 3.5mm jack plug which would fit in the headphone socket of the TV but you would likely have the same prob of muted TV speakers.
