Using headphones and TV speakers at same time


Symbiodin

Question

I have an LG OLED55C6P TV. Because of hearing difficulties, I generally use bluetooth headphones when watching the TV.  As far as I have been able to determine, there appears to be no way to use the headphones and also have the TV speakers working at the same time. This means that if I'm watching TV, no one else can watch and listen unless they have headphones.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way to have the headphones and TV speakers working at the same time?

On our TV, Settings | All Settings | Sound | Sound out, there is an option at the bottom of the list to select "Internal TV Speaker + Wired Headphones. This also lets us connect an external speaker and hear its audio in addition to the TV sound.

WebOS Software version 04.70.85.

I do not have this model of TV, but you may look for an option in accessibility submenu that allows multiple audio output. For example, newer Samsung TVs have an option that allows to use both internal speakers and Bluetooth headphones at the same time:

If you wish to use bluetooth headphones and the internal speakers then you need to do the following.

First pair the bluetooth headset to ensure the TV has it listed in its available devices

         Press and hold cog button on remote for 5 Sec

         Select Sound

          Select Sound Out

         Scroll down to Bluetooth and select the "Device list" on the right

         If not already searching press the search button

         Switch on your bluetooth headset in pairing mode.

         Select your device when it pops up. 

Go to the Sound configuration menue

Scroll down to  "Bluetooth Surroundsound + Internal TV Speakers"

Click on the device list on the right

Select your bluetooth headset.

Exit from the screen

I have Bose Bluetooth headphones which I have been able to connect wirelessly with my LG tv. My problem is with volume control. I can only adjust the volume using the the remote. The buttons on the headphones do nothing. The tv remote adjusts both the headphones and internal tv speakers simultaneously so that a comfortable level on the tv is too quiet and a louder volume on the headphones is too loud for the tv. Is there a way to adjust the volume on the two devices independently of one another?

I have set up two sets of headphones on my LG tv. Both are functional but not at the same time. Is it possible for two sets of wireless headphones to be used simultaneously?

Yes this can be achieved but you would need to purchase an external Bluetooth Adapter that supports this function. Amazon sell a few and they are reasonably inexpensive.

I have tried this, although possibly not in quite the same order. 

I select "Bluetooth + TV Speaker" in the sound output setting but as soon as I connect the headphones, the TV speaker goes off. 

The sound out setting changes to Bluetooth, rather than "Bluetooth + TV Speaker" as soon as I allow the headphones to connect to the TV.

      I am creating a streaming application, where user can access a list of mkv files from my server, Mkv is not supported in web browsers and it is not loading properly within my webOS web app.
      I cannot modify my files to another video format.
      Is there a native player for LG WebOS that I can embed into my web application ?
      Is there any video player with web sdk to play mkv on a smart tv.
      Ps: my videos are working well on chrome, as for Firefox or Safari, it tells me that the format is not supported.

      Just getting the runaround from LG, only want a baseline figure, they sent me this
       
      , our technicians have explained that we cannot calculate the unit's actual power consumption when not in standby because there are too many factors that could affect this calculation. These factors include how many pixel refreshers are run, whether the unit is connected to the internet, external devices connected, speakers connected, sound systems connected, HDD connected and recording set ups. I am afraid that we consequently cannot answer your question.

      we all know LG are not helpful to customers , but there’s no need to keep proving it.
      this TV has a good energy rating so figures must be available, they either dont care or understand what I am asking
       
      thanks
