Question about Samsung Audio Players & Recorders
I have the RCA optical cord with adapters to get the optical output to work with the Bluetooth transmitter. When the transmitter and headphones are turned on, I get a message that says "Bluetooth mode" (I think, it's not the best voice emulation). Both blue lights are solid, so I believe it's pairing fine. I just can't get the TV's sound into the headphones. I turned them all the way up, but they just chirped at me. Setting the TV's audio setting to "External Speaker" did nothing.
SOURCE: audio output jacks
If I remember this tv correctly, check under the audio setting in the menu, most tv's including this on have variable output for the audio o/p. meaning the the o/p vol. is adjusted as the tv speaker vol. changes. some tv's will put out a fixed audio o/p to the rca jacks, but will only do this when the speakers are shut off in the menu (not muted, but off). I have run into this problem many times & have yet to find a better solution to getting a steady sound sound out of the o/p jacks.

Your connection between the AR transmitter and the ONKYO receiver sounds solid. I'd guess it's the wireless speakers that are the wrong point, or at least that's what I'd look at first. Doing a bit of research, I noticed a couple minor points. First, these seem prone to RF interference from other RF devices. Have to tried switching channels on them? Second, someone reported theirs would not work properly unless the speakers were turned on just before the transmitter, and turned off shortly after the transmitter. Apparently you have to hold the button on the front in for 5 seconds to turn the speakers on or off. I know that's rather basic, but it's been a few days and no one else has responded, so I figured we should start somewhere.

SOURCE: audio output not working
I had what may have been a similar problem and even talked to Westinghouse to see what I was doing wrong. Woman suggested there was a problem with the audio output port and suggested I exchange tv for another one. When the new one had the same problem, I discovered that to get audio out requires the volume to be turned way up on the tv (set speaker preference to external only if you don't want sound from tv speakers as well). If you have a digital optical connection on both the tv and the home theater, the sound output is independent from the tv setting and is easier to work with.

Actually, you can do this. Just get an optical to RCA converter.
This looks like a good one: http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-40019-Optical-Converter/dp/B0002GV876/ref=pd_cp_e_2

Simple test to see if the unit is functional: get a cable like
plug it in the headphones output from your pc or whatever device which you know it works since you are using it with other regular headphones (even a phone will do) and see if you hear something. If you don't then it's defective, if you hear then the problem is with your HT.
The biggest one is the fact that the only way in which this HT is capable of delivering sound to another unit is thru the wireless S-Air connection which the wireless module from the headphones doesn't support - it can connect strictly only to the module from its base which accepts only cabled connections, which your HT doesn't have..
To put it simply there is no way to connect this headphones to this HT. If you want to use those headphones you will need to get a real receiver and use this HT strictly as an BR player.
