Greetings! I need advice/tips on how to connect a wireless headphone so it can be simultaneously heard thru headphone & TV's speakers. First here are the components: 1. Samsung Plasma 450 Series (720p); 2. Samsung BD-D5700 Blu-ray Player; 3. Sennheiser RS170 wireless headphones; 4. Time Warner Cable from wall (without cable box). Connections: A. Plasma display & Blu-ray player connected via HDMI; B. Cable connected to Plasma; C. Wireless headphones connected to Blu-ray player via RCA out. Problem: the connection "C" above. I had to do this temporarily because Plasma display had only an "optical digital audio" output and I didn't know how to connect that to the wireless headphone's 3.5mm stereo plug. At least when the source is coming from the Blu-ray player (Blu-ray, DVD, CD, or Internet) it does what we wanted. So I was wondering if there is such a thing, without paying arm-and-a-leg, that converts optical digital audio signal to analog & can connect to a 3.5mm stereo plug on the base of the wireless headphones? Any other way? Thank you! Robert

Found a solution & it's relatively cheap too: http://www.amazon.co...p_ob_e_title_0. The reviews are good too on there for this digital optical to RCA converter so crossing my fingers :) Thank you. Robert
