Did you connect the base/transmitter piece to the AUDIO OUT jacks on the back of the TV ? The radio you are listening to is the built-in FM radio/tuner. You need to connect the transmitter to an audio source (TV, PC, CD/DVD player, etc.) to receive sound from that source.
Unfortunately, this product has a reputation for unreliable operation. Many Amazon users report that they can't get it to work with their TVs. To isolate the problem, try plugging a good set of wired headphones into your television; if you hear nothing, then the TV is at fault. Otherwise, try plugging a different, known-good adapter cable into the TV. If you still don't get sound, then the Genica is broken.
Normally the wireless headphones have a transmitter that send audio via wireless to the wireless headphones. The transmitter needs to be plugged into the headphone outlet on the TV. This will switch off the speakers on the TV and sends the audio to the wireless headphones.
Hi - the tv sound will be picked up like an fm radio signal at 83 mhz. To get there, press the reset button the side of the headphones, then press scan. the first signal to be picked up will be the tv signal. This assumes, of course that you have fresh batteries in the transmitter and headphones, and that the volume is turned up on the headphones and the TV. Worked for me. The signal is not stereo, though.
Although it is a variable out i don't think the audio level would be high enough to get a fair audible signal, here is something youcan try: if you have a small portable radio(like kids use sometimes with the cd/cassette/radio)with external or aux input, you can hook up the variable out from the tv to these inputs on your radio then hookup your headphones to the radio(most port. radios have headphone jacks) but with out an amplifier you will not get a lot of level out of the tv.
You need to plug in the RCA plugs (red and white) to your cable receiver box and NOT the TV outlet.
If you have satelite box, it's the same thing. It has two sets of audio-out and one of them goes to your TV and the other set may be free.
If not, goto Radio Shack and get a SPLITTER so you can plug in the headphone set.
However, these headphones... I have one, may not be all that good quality and reliable.
u have to split the signal by having both the tv and the headphones getting the input,as you're probably only have the audio cables going to the headphones.You need an audio splitting cable (it has 4 malle connections) so you can put 2 in the tv and 2 in the headphone base.
I need more info on this. What type of tuner and receiver? Is the tuner plugged into the headphone jack on the tv? If you have a tuner for tv that tunes in channels 2,3,5,12,25,60 etc that would be an older tuner that used the older NTSC standard. Tv stations now broadcast using ATSC, channel 4,1, 4.2 etc.
