Your SELECLINE 20800 TV has only RCA outputs
If you are in this case, do not panic! You need three things: RCA cables, a double female RCA splitter with jack output, and your headphones.
A double female RCA splitter with jack output is a small object on which, on one side, you can plug in your headphones with its jack, and on the other side, you can plug in the two male RCA plugs.
Be careful when connecting : connect the white plug with the white output, and the red plug with the red output. Now, start your show, the sound comes out of the headphones connected to your SELECLINE 20800!

Why won’t my headphones work on my TV?
Make sure that the audio cable is firmly connected to the audio out port of the TV.
If the headphones have a volume control, set the volume on the source to a high level and use the volume on the headphones to adjust the volume to the desired listening level.
How do I connect my headphones to my TV without a headphone jack?
If your TV doesn’t have a 3.5mm jack but has RCA stereo outputs, get an RCA-to-3.5mm adapter and use your headphones that way.
The obvious problem here is that you need a really long wire to listen at a comfortable distance away from your TV.
And even if you have that wire, you’re then physically tethered to your TV.
How do I connect my wireless headphones to my TV without Bluetooth?
If you have a smart device connected to your TV, chances are it has Bluetooth, and you can connect to that.
If not, a Bluetooth transmitter can connect to your TV through either the RCA or 3.5mm jack, and you can connect to that transmitter with your headphones.
How do I pair my headphones to my TV?
Go into the settings menu of your TV, search for an accessories menu, and you should see the option to connect to Bluetooth there.
Make sure your headphones are visible and ready to connect, and search for the device.
Once you see it come up on the Bluetooth results on your TV, connect to them. Voila!Dec 20, 2022
