Using headphones and TV speakers at same time


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:

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 paired bluetooth headphones with my lg smart tv using bluetooth surround sound/internal speakers.  It worked except the volume control for the
      tv overrides the volume on the headphones.  Is there a way to get the headphone volume to work making them louder while leaving the internal speakers as they are set?  Thank you

      Today I switched to WOW internet service and dropped ATT and DirectTV.  I purchased Sling, but now can't add it to my LG TV because there is no option that I can find to add an APP like Sling.  There is no LG Content Store.  What do I do?

      I have a new LG OLEDGX65 TV with a Sonos EARC sound bar but having a problem with connecting a Bernafon hearing aid adapter which requires a optical or RCA output. (
      link hidden, please login to view The problem is the optical & analogue outputs are not available when a Sound bar is connected via the HDMI ARC input.  Its possible to connect sound bar using optical but then you loose the control of the sound bar volume(HDMI CEC). Yes you can use the separate APP but that's not a really a viable solution.
      So does anybody know of an adapter that can be put on the the HDMI aARC connection to extract the Audio for the hearing aid adapter ?
      The ARC sound would also need and be seen by the Sound bar.

      I have a problem updating or installing amazon prime video app. When hitting the update button (after several factory resets) it simply says "Application has not been installed. Try again" after it stops.
      This possibly happened due to a cancelled update a week ago.
      Any ideas how to fix this? Factory reset doesn't work. App won't run without update, and update won't run.

      I just routed an HDMI cable to my PC that is in a different room.  Now I'm thinking it would be great if I could use the remote on the PC.  Does such a thing exist?  I didn't find anything when searching.
