There is a 3.5 mm "female" audio output on the back of my Samsung TV. I used that. Didn't need the RCA jacks. There is also a USB plug on the SAMSUNG that I used to power/charge the Transmitter. Double back taped it to the TV and it is now a permanent fixture. So all I have to do is unplug the 3.5 mm jack when I want to revert to the TV speakers.

I totally know what you're saying but this damn Samsung doesn't seem to have a 3.5 inlet. I've attached a couple of pics in case my eyes are just missing it.Click image for larger version

Could be behind the mount, which appears to be made for a larger television.

Are these photos of the rear TV? It may not have the headphone jack but the the front TV does. That is where you plug in your Bluetooth device and that will send the sound signal from the TV to the radio in the Bluetooth mode. You want to use the front TV as that is the one you will be playing movies on.

You do not input sound to the TV. Even though I now have wired mine direct, I still use the headphone jack for the output. I have the same front TV as you do as I upgraded mine last fall and it has a headphone jack. There probably is a plug in it from the factory to run the headphone jacks at the second passenger seat and at the rear to the side of the rear seat. You have to unplug that plug to use your Bluetooth device. When you want to hear the TV speakers, simply unplug your Bluetooth device.

The bad news: as some of you had suggested, I looked on the back of both TV's and didn't see the audio jack (even removed the mount), and then looked into the Samsung manual to see that they had removed that option.

Good news: bought an audio optical cable to 3.5 jack converter, and that did the trick. Will post pictures/specs of the adaptor later in case someone in the future comes across this.

Thanks for the help and suggestions.

Quick question, with the optical cable, are you able to use the native TV speakers or are they automatically muted when the optical cable is plugged in?

Surround Sound problem

Mine didn't automatically mute and both stayed on. However, I went ahead and selected external speakers on the menu to avoid any sound overlaps since the Bluetooth naturally has a little delay (menu button on TV remote, audio, scroll down to speakers).

This set up works for me since I have a 6 and 2 year old watching TV on long drives and now they can hear over the AC noise.

Thanks. Then do send me the details on the cable. That will eliminate my need to unplug the BT Transmitter when we only want to use the native speakers.
