    I am trying to find out if there is a gadget/splitter etc to help with a problem. Firstly, can two wireless headphones run off the same transmitter for TV listening? Second, is there any way that one person can listen to the TV on wireless headphones and another person listen to the actual TV without headphones? Thanks for any help.

    Hi beepalm

    The first of your questions is very easy to answer. Analogue wireless headphone transmitters can send to as many headphones as you like! Digital wireless trasmitters normally have a finite number of connections. Devices which use Kleer Audio can only connect to 4, Bluetooth is out though as it is a closed and individual connection between two devices for security reasons.

    As for your second question -

    This is either a function of your TV, it's very rare but some TVs have the ability in the settings to control the headphone socket separately from the speakers. Other TVs have a Phono type output which is not part of the same circuit as the speakers and can therefore be used simoltaneously, another option if you have surround sound is to use spare outputs from the surround sound box.
