my father is very hard of hearing and has recently converted to Optus in order to watch the EPL. Previously he had Foxtel and his wireless headphones were able to connect into the foxtel box.
Is there any way of connecting his headphones to the Fetch Box? I have a digital - analogue converter with toslink connection but this does not seem to work. Unfortunately his TV is a Sanyo which has only one audio output - when we connect his headphones to this output it kills the sound so no-one else can hear. Please help if you can to save the rest of us from going deaf from the volume needed for my father to hear

The TOSLink should work but if not perhaps try the composite out plugs?
You just need some RCA to 3.5 stereo plugs
etc. Just check they work in the direction you want to send the sound (not sure if that's important)
Otherwise perhaps consider buying a sound bar (with a subwofer) that has headphone out. They only cost a few $100 now days and improve sound a lot for everyone.

The cheap soundbars at BigW don't get good feedback.
I was thinking a new TV might be in order.

Dont think the Might has RCA out put. Is there an RCA output from your TV?
IF yes then get an RCA ->3.5mm connector.
how about something like this
Not sure if it is HDCP 2.2 compliance, maybe contact the seller for more details
Maybe a new 4K OLED TV

Did wonder about that. Was using Mighty Online Manuals but the may be Gen2?

Hey there, did you find a solution? I'm having the exact problem & it's driving me crazy. Cheers.

Try the answer marked as a solution?
2017-10-23 02:58 PM
But which one? There are 4 options given & I'm unsure which one is the solution. Cheers.

All are just examples of the same solution (A box that splits off the sound from a HDMI cable.)
As mentioned check on HDCP 2.2 compliance before you buy one (they either have it or they don't).
