@Robin4ascii Thanks for the note. I'd recommend reaching out to TCL support to see what suggestions they may have. You can locate their contact information here: https://community.roku.com/t5/Manufacturer-Support-Warranty-Resources/Contacting-Support-for-Your-Ro...

I might recommend trying to use the private listening feature of the Roku mobile app. You would pair the Bluetooth device to your mobile phone, then launch the Roku mobile app and connect to your Roku TV. Once connected, use the headphones icon on the Remote tab of the mobile app to enable private listening. This should then route the audio through your phone to your Bluetooth device.

@rrvbison That's correct. The private listening feature only currently supports audio from streaming channels on your TV. Feel free to visit the 'Suggest a feature' section of the Community to share any additional suggestions.

I'm a senior citizen. I'm hearing impaired and I'd love to listen to my Roku tv via my wireless headphone while my wife listens to the speakers. The tranmitter that I hook up does not send voice signals to my headphones..any suggestions on how to get it to work?

What are you connecting the device to?  If it uses the optical output from the TV, be sure you have set the audio output to 'pcm'.

using private listen option is not a 'solution' but a work around. is there an actual solution for this thread? ie, I bought the roku version of the TLC smart tv vs the android tv version not realizing the roku didn't come with bluetooth support. I have multiple HDMI inputs and would like to know if anyone has actually got a bluetooth dongle to work with the roku smart tv's. thanks
