Wireless headphones connected to TV picking up less channels

The headphones for years picked up all Comcast channels.  Now the number of channels it picks up is slowly decreasing.  We bought new headphones but it made no difference.  We have a hard of hearing family member who relies on the headphones to enjoy TV.  Many channels are no longer an option.  Any idea why the channels are lessening?

SOURCE: No sound from the TV when the headphones are plugged in.

if you have a stereo unit(am+fm reciever) that has output to speakers, connect the out jack of the tv to input on back of stereo unit(aux in or cd input) then you can have output to headphone and speakers also.

SOURCE: RS120 Can still hear TV when headphones are on

Ok.. first.. the simple thing is to go into your television menu and turn the television speaker OFF.
Then exit the menu and turn the volume up.. try your headphones now.

Next.. check the back of the TV for a FIXED AUDIO OUT.. plut your headphones into these outputs.. if you have these.. you can simply turn the set down.. and use the volume control on the headphones.

SOURCE: audio from tv is not restored by turning off power on headphones

It sounds as if you are plugging the base into a standard headphone jack located on the Television set.

RCA Headphone jacks (incl mini) automatically stop the sound output to the main speakers on almost every set I have seen.. or home stereo.. etc etc

In other words you can take a standard RCA jack.. with nothing connected to it.. plug it in while the music or sound is coming out the main speaker.. and it will cut off the output to those speakers..

If you set has audio outputs on the back.. preferably Fixed Audio Out .. you will need to connect your base unit to those.. turn your set volume to 0 and adjust the headset volume using the control on the right ear-cup.

If you have variable audio out.. you will need to go into your TV sets setup menu.. turn off the speaker.. and turn up the set until you achieve a signal and decent volume through the headset.

If you are missing these connections.. your current “work around” is your only solution.

Best of luck

SOURCE: I can't hear any of the gameplay audio through my brand new X3s..

You have to connect the red/white RCA audio cables that came with the X3 in-between the audio cables that are going to your TV.

Where do I find the model number


The words "red and blue lights", "paired", "connect" and "beeps" make me believe that your headphones are Bluetooth-enabled. However, I never heard of a TV that is Bluetooth-enabled. Therefore, I do not think that you will be able to pair, nor connect your headphones to your TV. If you want to listen to your TV wirelessly, you will have to use regular (not Bluetooth) wireless headphones, which consist of two pieces: the headphones and a transmitter that connects to the audio output(s) of your TV and transmits the sound from your TV to the headphones wirelessly.

Sennheiser Wireless Headphone picks up unwanted transmissions


This headset uses a 900 MHz frequency for connection from the headset to the base.
You will always incur lots of interference in a busy office using that frequency band. Any antennas on the roof or close by?
Amateur radio users?
The other thing, you might have a faulty power supply or "dirty power" coming into the unit. You can try and isolate in a current regulating power bar and see if that helps.
Else, consider changing technologies and moving to, say a DECT band.
Avoid, 2.4 and 5 GHz bands as they are in the wireless devices range and likely will incur equal amounts of interference.

I just purchased another RS120 to put in bedroom, have one in liveing room, the one in the liveing room works great but the one in the bedroom will not work, it will pick up the show from the liveing room...


is there a frequency channel selector on the headphone base, and on the headphones? the two pairs must be on different frequencies, or they will pick up the same show as the other

I have 2 pair of Sony MDR-RF925RK wireless headphones. They cannot be used at the same time for different audio sources (Computer + TV) as both headset pick up the same signal. Do I have to return one...


You don't necessarily need to buy a different brand of headphones. Check with Sony and see if they offer the same headphones with different frequencies.
I've had to do this with other wireless products in my own home.

Just bought the brookstone wireless tv headphones. I have a Westinghouse 40 inch lcd tv. I plugged in the rca red/white into the audio out and I don't get any sound into the headphones?


I had the same problem with Brookstone wireless headset the only solution I found was plug in the red and white connectors to your cable box it works perfectly that way. Just make sure the red cable connector from the transmitter is connected to right red input connector on the box. I have a Comcast cable box. Now I need a solution for them on my PS3?

Wireless infrared stereo headphone no sound


You do not need to tune anything. Both transmitter (in your DVD player) and headphone operate at the same frequency.

The only thing I could think of is to check your DVD player's menu to make sure the transmitter is activated. And make sure you maintain line of sight between headphone and transmitter.

But rather then me guessing since you did not provide the model numbers of your products, why don't you contact XO Vision's customer service as listed on their website: http://www.xovision.com/contactus.php

Good luck.

No sound in rear speakers


I figured this one out, although I might still send it back for an exchange. It turned out that the right rear speaker works just fine, however the jack seems to be flawed. When fully plugged in, the rear speaker input only picks up the left channel. If you pull it out just a little, say 1/8-1/4 the way out it will pick up both channels. Not a good solution but it works for the time being.
