I have a Panasonic TC-P42S2 Plasma HDTV with Panasonic Blu-Ray Sound System SC-BT730.
The TV only has one Digital Audio out, which is being used by the Surround Sound System.
I would also like to use a wireless headphone, but notice there is only ONE digital audio out on the TV.
I purhased a Toslink Splitter and a Digital to Analog converter (since my headphones are analog)
get no audio to the wireless speakers, but I do get audio to the surround sound. I looked on the back of the surround sound system and do see a unused AUX port.
Any ideas on how to get this to work? Do I have the right converter, or is it possible the converter is bad?
TOSLINK and SPDIF splitters usually work great, so the problem shouldn't be there (unless you are one of the 1% to have a defective one).
BUT Sometimes the signal strength coming out the two downstream sides is NOT the same as the signal strength going in! It might be reduced and not powerful enough to push past your new digital to analog converter (if I understand your present set up correctly). This could be solved by adding an "in-line" amp/booster (for the signal. OR you could replace the "splitter" with a switch (so your signal strength would be the same to either component).
Additionally, check out the actual cables you are using. Have you tried swapping them out with different HIGHER QUALITY ones to see if an analog or digital cable is bad???? I have seen several "splitter" problems solved JUST by replacing the cables originally used! Digital or Analog cables can go bad/be bad. It is worth testing.
