Bt transmitter/receiver

Hi All, I have ordered a BT transmitter/ receiver to use with BT headphones and my flat panel,it plugs into the audio output via 3.5 mm plug,my question is will I loose sound from the flat panel speakers when I plug this device in?if do it will defeat the purpose, I want to use is at the same time with basically 2 different volumes ,one for me and one for Da wife.

I don't know for sure but in most case,s a headphone set, be it BT or wireless, or wired will in most cases cut off the speakers to the unit. It's usually meant for privacy listening.

Your TV may have an audio out jack, normally RCA connectors.
There are several possibilities on how yours works.

The most common way I have seen is to have the audio out at full volume to be connected to a sound system where the volume can be adjusted independently of the TV speakers.

The instruction manual for your TV should explain how yours works.

Correct, with a separate sound system such as a surround sound or theater system you should be able to do what you want.

Now that Greg mentioned it, I have that type system but I'm not using it as you want to. But I might try!

Me too!
I am also in the market for something similar.

Geo, does what you have ordered have both an input and output?
This is what I need on my non-BT TV and surround system.

OK, so I have the BT tax/rec paired with my headphones, works great with my iPhone (used it for testing purposes) but when I plug it into the audio output RCA on the back of my TV,nothing! there are no settings on the TV,these outputs must have to go through an Amp.

Can you post the make & model number of your TV? There are several links to the Anker device. Which one do you have? That information with help us figure out whether it will work with your setup.

It's a Samsung UN40FH6030,I wonder if the Toslink connection would work?my goal was to be able to use both TV speakers as well as head phones at the same time.

According to your TV manual... the AUDIO OUT jack is supposed to follow the volume control.

✎AUDIO OUT: Connects to the audio input jacks on your amplifier/home theater.
When connecting, use the appropriate connector (sold separately).
When you connect an audio amplifier to the AUDIO OUT jacks, decrease the volume of the TV and adjust the volume level with the amplifier’s volume control


In the diagram since it shows a single AUDIO OUT connector I'm assuming it's 1/8" stereo and once plugged in will shut off the TV speakers.

The Toslink may work with an analog adapter but it won't be affected by the volume control.

Operator error! After great effort I managed to link the 2 together and now everything works well,I plug the tx into the audio output 3.5 mm connection audio output from the TV is no effected, only problem is the slight delay with the audio.

Some TV's allow you to have the audio output jack live AND the speakers to work at the same time. Usually that fact is stated in the owners manual. It was not in yours.

Good you got everything working there.
