I recently purchased a Sennheiser RS 175 to work with my home theater, but it does not appear it’s going to work. The instructions only tell how to connect it to the TV and that does not work for me. My home theater is set up with everything connected to my receiver (Yamaha Aventage RX-a1050). My Xbox One, PS4, SNES Classic and cable box all connect to the receiver via HDMI. The receiver is then connected to the TV via HDMI. The receiver does not have optical out.
Because both the receiver and TV support ARC, I thought that the audio signal would pass to the TV along with the video on the HDMI cable, however, when I connect these headphones to the TV’s optical out, I don’t get any sound from any of these devices. I do get sound from the TV itself, but nothing else. If you can offer any suggestions, I’d appreciate it. If not, please recommend a good set of Bluetooth headphones for watching moves/TV.
