Hi

I have a soundbar connected via Bluetooth to Sony wireless headphones.

Bluetooth works with the soundbar's woofer and the headphones work perfectly with my iPhone but I can't seem to get any TV sound to the headphones.

Any advice much appreciated.

I doubt that is what the Bluetooth in the soundbar is for.

It will be so you can connect a Bluetooth source to the soundbar (like a phone) and listen to the music off that. You are trying to use the Soundbar as the source, and that is not what it is designed to do.

Pity.

Thanks for the advice, though.

While there is a soundbar on the market that can send TV audio to bluetooth headphones, expect an audio delay...
In reality, bluetooth is a short rang PITA for real time audio listening.
You're better off with RF headphones.
