If the headphones base has RCA connections, check the back of the receiver for a jack labeled tape out. If you hook these jacks up, you should be good to go. Whatever audio is playing through the receiver should be output from the tape out jacks as well.

There is no bluetooth listed under my devices on my new Vizio D43-D1 tv. Can I connect it to Bluetooth speaker?

Unfortunately, you can't connect Bluetooth speakers to this TV. You can connect a wired sound bar, home theater sound system (receiver and speakers) or wireless headphones with a wired based station (RCA or digital audio input from the TV's audio out). These wireless systems use RF or Bluetooth signals to the headphones. See this page, http://stereodevelopment.com/#what-are-wireless-tv-headphones , for a few models of wireless headphones that will be compatible with the D43-D1.

I wish that I had better news for you. You may be able to find an audio receiver that supports Bluetooth. However, these usually are Bluetooth devices, the same as the Bluetooth headphones. They can't pair and send a signal to your headphones.

Pioneer VSX-456 headphone jack problem

No the headphone jack doesn't disable the speakers. There are two switches in the lower middle of the receiver that are labeled speaker A and B. Pushing one of these should disconnect the speakers from the receiver.

Its all about the quality of the converter in the Headphone unit.

If the quality is lower than the quality of the converter in the receiver, then using the head jack is a better idea. Since there is more room, power, and money going into the receiver, it may be better

I do not believe that there is a cheap way to connect to the headphone with optical audio

The only way to be sure though, is to test it and see. Connect your computer to the receiver with HDMI, play audio through, and compare it to when you just connect your computer to the headphones, via optical audio

Wireless headphone hook up

Hello depends on how you hook it up as thee are several ways.

many receivers will output sound through the headphone jacks even when the speakers are left on.(my receivers require that you manually turn speaker A off when using headphones)

it may be possible for you to connect the headphones to a tape output but this will require headphones that have a volume control on them or an external.volume control knob.. You may encounter a problem as I am not sure if a tape output will provide enough signal to drive a pair of headphones. this would not be a problem if you use a pair of WIRELESS headphones as they have their own power source onboard..

A set of wireless headphones could also easily be connected to the output on the back of the TV but assuming you have your receiver plugged in to the TV audio out you may need a couple of Y adapter cables.

Also if your receiver has a pair of PRE OUT jacks those would work to power a set of wireless headphones may also power a wired set but once again not sure on power as I have never needed to try it.

Hope that helps a bit

Your system is designed to interrupt the signal flow once headphones are attached. It can not be changed without internal modifications. There is no control to do this.

Looking for a schematic diagram

It would be less trouble to disable the internal speakers from the television's setup menu and connect to a set of powered speakers or a receiver using the built-in audio outputs. It will be a challenge to get good sound quality and levels from the headphone jack.
