    Hi All, HT n00b here. Actually, not HT at all, just looking for a simple solution for the man cave... After using a simple 3.5mm headphones output on previous LCD sets for years, I just bought a new Panasonic plasma that has Toslink as the only audio out option. I do not own a receiver. I'd like to be able to listen to all TV out audio (actually Xbox, PS3, and laptop) via headphones. A receiver is not in the budget. So... 1) Other than expensive digital wireless headphones (any under $200???), is there some sort of digital-analog converter/adapter out there? 2) On a related note, can you split a digital signal with a Y adapter as well? I do have a Panasonic sound bar as well. It would be convenient to split the output between the soundbar and digital headphones, if that's the only solution to question #1.) Thanks in advance! Ed
