tv audio help

hoping someone can help me with this problem. My grandfather watches his tv quite late at night and wears headphones so as not to disturb the neighbours. recently he bought a new samsung tv which does not have a headphone socket. so he purchased an adapter of red and white audio to headphone socket which works. however the audio still comes out the tv speakers as well. if the tv volume is turned up or down it makes no change to the headphone volume even if it is turned down to zero the sound still comes out the headphones. i went into the tv audio menu and changed the output to external audio output. this cuts out the tv speakers and leaves only the headphones on. however the volume button does not work (comes up not available). the volume is too low for my grandpa on th headphones but there is no way to turn it up. can anyone recommend a solution such as a home cinema kit or something. rep given

My brother had similar experience wiring up a set of 2.1 speakers to his new panny 46" (cheap option coz couldnt afford decent surround after the tv lol). Luckily in the pannys menu it has a option to change the volume on external outputs as he didnt want to have to get up every time he wanted to adjust volume on the speakers themselves. However i looked at doing it as a test run on my Samsung 50" ps530 and nothing in the menu system does a separate volume for external out unfortunately.

So my advice is most probs get a set of headphones with a volume control on them. My dad has some with one on and they work great.

PS... the set my dad has is wireless, i maybe wrong but i think a good set of wireless nowadays would have a volume know on the phones themselves. May be a simple solution for him if a home cinema set is too much.

Thing is m8... if hes only after volume on his headphones why go to the expense of buying a home cinema kit, add to that the cost of electric on it... when you could just get a replacement set of cans in the first place and save the cash. If hes having to wear cans coz of the noise why on earth would he want a home cinema kit ? Surely thats just complicating matters.

richer sounds do a headphone amp that may be what you are after ,£30 it has 2 large control buttons which would be good if he has trouble with small fiddly switches. : )

i think judging by the OP, the tv wont output a loud enough signal for headphones and at a guess even ones with a volume control will only be able to adjust it quieter? signal needs to be amplified:thinking:

The above from Richer Sounds combined with a volume control on the phones sounds good then :-)

i know what your saying but he only need the headphones at night when everyone is asleep. he is also finding that volume is very poor when watching dvds with the samsung tv which i also actually find, was thinking that a cinema system would be good
