      I have a TCL 55″ RokuTV in my new home gym. When running on my treadmill early in the a.m. I want to listen on headphones so as not to wake the family. What product will work best to allow the TV sound to connect to my Bluetooth headphones?

      Hello Mitchell,

      You can try using the Roku app on your cellphone to achieve what you want, I know you can pair Bluetooth headphones with fire tv and Roku streaming devices.

      Let us know how it goes.

      Search online for a bluetooth transmitter for example: click here

      this is designed to link your TV to bluetooth headphones or speaker.

      Hey guys, thanks for the suggestions!👍 My TCL Riku TV is evidently an older model which does not have Bluetooth pairing for anything other then Roku speakers. However, I was able to use the Roku app to pair my headphones thru my smartphone. This is working great and is in perfect sync with the TV. Komando Community ROCKS!!

      Welp, Sadly the Roku app which allowed me to listen to the TV through my bluetooth headphones is now a fail. I don’t understand what happened. The work around was working perfectly, then after a couple of weeks it started glitching. The sound would drop out and come back every 30 seconds or so and at the same time the video would occasionally buffer. I up graded my Fios to the Gigabit service yet the issue remains. The video only buffers when I try to use the app to listen to my headphones. Today the tv kept switching from headphones to tv speakers back and forth. I don’t know what to try now. I had bought a bluetooth transmitter but that was all distorted and was a pain to work. Any other suggestions from the community?

      Hello Mitchell,

      You can go over the Roku troubleshooting steps here, I would also reboot your phone, make sure it is up to date and is connected to the same wifi network as the Roku if the Roku is on 2.4GHZ then make sure the phone is on 2.4GHZ network or 5GHZ & 5Ghz if that applies.

      I would also try clearing the cache on Roku, you can click here to see how.
