    Hi guys. I can't seem to find a modern answer to a very basic problem. My girl can't sleep with the TV volume on. I can't sleep with it off. So I want to get a "pillow speaker" hooked up to a modern TV. But I find no 3.5 mm jack on new TV's. Unless you can point out a Samsung that has one, I need to know if I can just cut off the 3.5 jack on the pillow speaker and wire it up as if I was wiring up one of the auxiliary speakers on an old HDTV Sony I own now. They have separate speakers that wire up just like any stereo speakers. Is there going to be an "over-power" problem? Will there be any impedance issues, etc., etc.? Thanks for spending time to answer a question from a "zero electronics knowledge" type guy. If you choose, I can also be reached at [email protected]

    Hello,
    Does your TV have RCA audio out?
    If yes, you can get an RCA to female jack adapter. Obviously the jack size will depend on the jack you have now.

    Martin: Thanks for the reply. I figured that out about 10 minutes after I posted here. That is the perfect solution for me...and cheap too. After I just re-read the thread I wrote last night, I realize you must have thought me an idiot. I know I did!! lol......:) So obvious an answer from you. Thanks for your patience and good manners. lol

    Dave: You are saying I posted this elsewhere? Geez, I sure don't remember that. lol...sorry. If I double-posted here it was by accident. Thanks for the help. :) Peter
