    Hey guys, this question is probably for someone who has more experience with audio equipment. I want to hook my headphones up to my PS3, but I'm not sure how it could work. From what I read, the PS3 will not push audio from the game out of the USB port to the headphones, its only for the mic. The only other thing I can think of is to connect the headphones directly to the TV, but the tv doesn't have a headphone jack or anything like that. I have the PS3 hooked up with an HDMI cord and I have a 3.5mm adapter for the headphones. Any ideas about a set up would be great. Thanks.

    I believe the PS3 will do audio out via RCA composite. You could possibly use something like this.

    I am not positive it will work, but for less than a buck (you could probably pick one up at Radio Shack), it would be worth a try.
