    Hello Everybody,
    I have some of those IR headphones from mobile AV systems that I would like to use at home.
    OK so it's for my dad (he watches tv so loud)
    Anyway, I don't know what the frequency that is used.
    All I know is that the ones from accellvision works on my 06 Ridgeline and 04 & 07 Odyssey.

    Thanks for any help...

    Alan

    Your IR is the carrier frequency. The audio is the modulation. You need a transmitter to take the audio from the tv and send it to the headphones.

    Before you get too far - Radio Shack has a line of IR headphones. The $20 model works pretty well. That might save you some frustration.

    After I posted I dug around on google and I kind of got the idea that it would be cheaper to go that route...

    Thanks for the reply....
