Anthony, I've tried to connect the headphones to the tv without any success, although they worked fine on the previous tv. They work when connected to the sky box, but that's not satisfactory because of the sound lag, I wonder as the new tv is supposed to be smart whether I need to activate the sockets?
Anthony, have found the sound time delay and the same on the sky box but am still getting an echo effect. surely the phono sockets on the tv should work, my references to the sky box are incidental, is there a possibility that there could be a fault with the new tv?
Anthony, I have no idea what a soundbar is, I'm trying to connect a basic set of Thompson wireless headphones,
Anthony, yes they have a 3mm jack as well but plugging it into the earphone socket cuts off the tv speakers, we need those on as well, I'm the only one going deaf.
Anthony, I was happy with your answers to my question and as the new tv has bluetooth, myself and some other old gits are off to Northallerton tommorrow to look at the Bose range. thanks again, Dave
