Hi don't know if anyone on this site can help but! I bought a new TV last year but it has no headphone socket do you know if it possible to fit one as playing games on my xbox at night is not making my family very happy.

Thanks

Most modern televisions have audio output sockets (normally red and white).

Simply buy an adaptor lead, rf audio to headphone.

It would be helpful to mention the make model of TV and from whom you purchased it.. As Morddwyd mentioned most TV have RCA sockets - Red">http://www.maplin.co.uk/cables-and-connectors&ei=N6MST6LZHcru8QO30ZTkAw&usg=AFQjCNHDSCN3ZOzEdd7XvhlltswoXXpYrA&cad=rja">Red White] for which 3.5 mm adaptors are available [enter link description here

The RCA/Phono sockets are unlikely to have high enough output to directly drive headphones!

There seem to be lots of headphones available that connect directly to Xbox.
