DVD TV sound

After several trips was annoyed that while sleeping on sofa I had to listen to whatever was being played on DVD and sent to tv in bed area. Finally a nerd friend figured out how to solve my problem. No it wasn't ear plugs. On radio adjust fader 100 % to rear then turn up radio sound 100%. Then adjust tv sound as needed. It's not very loud but it works. Voila. Problem solved.

Sometimes having a nerd friend pays off!

I have tried unsuccessfully to find a way to connect headphones to the TV set. There is not a headphone jack so I tried a Bluetooth transmitter connected to the digital audio out on the tv. This didn't work...even though the converter works on two similar TV sets in our house.

There is a pair of wires with red and white rca jacks coming out of a ho,e in the back of the TV set. These would seem to be audio connection from the TV set to the DVD player. If so, why not use the digital audio out instead of hardwiring a different connection?

The current work around is the DVD player fader and tv volume near zero.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Airstream drills a hole in the back of the TV and connects to the speaker wires, an analog connection of inferior quality. This signal feeds to the stereo head unit. In the 2012 model there was another device, hidden with the head unit, a Sony XA-300, that allowed the head unit to select inputs and there was a headphone jack on that unit. However, because of the inferior quality of the audio signal from the TV, headphone use was marginal. The who arrangement did work for TV sound from the overhead speakers, though.
To solve the whole problem, and some others, I just replaced the TV with a better unit that has a headphone jack, optical audio out, aux, and other features. It was not an expensive or difficult solution. Perhaps the best part, is I can use headphones while my wife is still sleeping in the morning.
