    Any way to create shortcut on smart TV to change audio from speaker to optical in 1 button?

    Basically I have to go to settings and wade through a bunch of stuff to change from headphones to TV speaker every time. Quite annoying as I do it regularly it seems too.

    TV is a Samsung UE50K6020 and the remote seems to be a small cheap thing. It does have ABCD buttons in various colours though, giving me hope!

    Can I ask why you're having to change this setting? Is it because you have a sound bar or av receiver by any chance? If so, and your TV and sound device supports them, connect them together with their ARC HDMI ports instead.

    I have optical headphones (transmitter type) and I switch from listening using those and watching the TV using the TV's speakers.

    Just thinking more about this, is there any iPhone app that would do the same job? I see loads now that I've done an app search. So many though, not sure which have this feature..

    ​You need to search for one that will do macro's.

    Daft question, but can't you just mute the telly?
    As far as I was aware, the optical output isn't volume controlled, its' just on all the time. I'd assume that the wireless headphones have a volume control on there somewhere?
