My husband is hard of hearing and has a pair of wireless headphones but, because the insertion of the headphone jack into the socket on the back of the TV mutes the sound for everyone else, we were able, by using a simple adapter, to insert them into the left and right outputs in the back of our Humax PVR. Problem solved. We all had sound. THEN we bought a new PVR and despite doing a lot of reading of tech specs and customer reviews we failed to understand that this new machine had no left and right sockets. In fact it only had one HDMI cable to attach to the TV.
We asked our more switched on 'techie' friends, the staff in the TV and sound department of a large local store and in a well known electronic retailers and no one could help. Because we have a USB port in the front of the PVR I started to do a Google search to see if I could find something which might fit the bill if we used that. That's when I finally came across this this piece of equipment. Thanks to all the really helpful reviews on Amazon from people with similar headphone problems we decided to take the plunge not really knowing if it would work. It arrived very quickly, was easy to install [although the booklet with it gives no guidance whatsoever] and lo and behold it works so we're both able to enjoy the TV again.
