Maybe a silly question but if you connect the headphones to the headphone jack socket on the TV, is the optical output also disabled along with the TV speakers? That might be an option also.
Incidentally, I would like to know for my own purposes as well.
Hi I’m having difficulty trying to connect beats to a Samsung tv I’m on the Bluetooth audio devices and it won’t pair up where specifically do I have to put the beats near the tv?
I had same problem ,if you fit a toslink to av adaptor to a bluetooth transmitter,it will work. Because the spdif output is always available.You can also buy a small module called a BT _029 look it up on the nett It does both

I only have 20% hearing and I have a samsung UE43NU7020 tv which has neither audio out (phono type sockets ) or min jack 3.5mm,after many experiments i found a Digital to Analog Audio Hifi Headphone Amplifier With Toslink (optical) input,( on EBAY) this has a headphone volume control which works independently of the tv volume.Now i can hear the tv programmes .
