I’ve received complaints from the neighbor below us that our TV is too loud, so I’m considering a TV adapter, especially since I’d like new aids, too.
My wife has Costco KS10s; I have Philips 9010s, considering 9030s, Jabras, ???. At present, we get TV sound through HDMI-ARC to an A/V receiver to speakers. TV adapters seem to connect via optical cable. We have no RCAs on the TV. My TV doesn’t do HDMI and optical simultaneously. (It does do optical and internal speakers simultaneously, but the internal speakers don’t speak well.)
Can anyone here help me set up a TV adapter so that I can stream TV sound to my HAs and my wife can hear sound from the speakers? Would a splitter that took the TV’s optical output and sent it to 2 devices (adapter and receiver) work? Any pitfalls that you can prepare me for?
I’ve tried to get this info from my TV manufacturer (LG), but they use Facebook, and they are not getting back to me. I’d call, but my guess is you won’t be surprised to read I don’t do all that well on the phone. (ASHA is my biggest reason for considering new aids.)
