With an optical-out-only LED TV, how do I get a separate feed to wireless headphones without overriding the built-in speaker?

I have an LED TV with no analog out. I need to connect to a set of wireless headphones which have only analog in. So I bought a home theater system with optical in and analog out into which I plugged the wireless headphone unit, but I get no sound. I called the company and someone told me that only signals that come in via analog inputs can be routed to the two RCA analog outs. This makes no sense to me, but is this true? And if so, is it just my $300 Onkyo receiver that functions this way?
In any event, how do I connect my optical-out-only TV to a set of headphones in such a way that it doesn't kill the TV's built in speaker?
