I'm looking for a way to connect my wireless headphones or speaker to my LG TV, which does not have audio out connections; at least none I can find..
I have a year old LG, LCD TV connected to both ATV for Netflix and a DVD/VCR. With this setup I use a wireless headset, but without a TV connection I have to choose between the audio connections of either the DVD player or ATV.
Any suggestions on a way to access the audio of both?

model number on the TV?

it probably has an optical output, you should be able to find a sound bar / speaker system with an optical in.
for wireless headphones, you might have to get an optical to analog converter (http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10423&cs_id=1042302&p_id=6884&seq=1&format=2). but with this, you have to send a stereo signal on the optical port.
you can set the aTV to do stereo out, but not sure if the TV will pass the correct signal.

Could be a port but I can't find it. I currently have the converter for the ATV connection and would gladly move it to the LG if one is found...

Don't know which model TV but I'll check.
