How can I connect headphones to an Optical Digital Audio Out port?
Posted on 2010-08-14
I recently bought an LG 32LH30 32-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV. With my old (analog) TV, I could plug my headphones, with an extension cord, into a standard mini-plug port, but the HDTV doesn't have a mini-plug port. Instead, it has a squarish port, covered by a tiny flap, labeled Optical Digital Audio Out. I talked via Internet Chat yesterday with an LG rep, who basically said that you couldn't connect headphones to this TV. I hope this is not the case. Does anybody know if I can get an adapter to convert the Optical Digital Audio port to mini-plug, or perhaps a set of headphones (I would be willing to buy new ones for this purpose) that would connect to this port?
