    Hello, I'm a new to all of this HTIB and connections so i need some help! I have my Sony Home Theater System connected in the following way HDMI output to Samsung LCD 46' TV and the Audio of the cable box goes into the Sony Home Theater System and i have my computer and PS3 also connected to the Sony Home Theater System via HDMI.

    You can hook up a pair of headphones directly to your computer.
    You can hook up a pair, with a headphone amp, to your PS3
    And, depending which Samsung you can hook up headphones to it(you can at least get a tos-link/rca converter box and hook up a headphone amp, just like you would for the PS3)
    But nope, that HTiB does not have any provision for headphones...not even a workaround.
