I read this thread with interest. The comment on synching reminded me of
one of the hazards of streaming from my laptop. I have often begun
viewing something on Netflix or Amazon and have the audio and video be
tantalizingly out of synch. I have usually been able to correct it by
re-starting the stream.
I use cordless headphones for viewing without disturbing the household. I
had good luck with a Radio Shack over-the-ear item that has performed well
over the past six years. I take the audio from the AccuVox connected to the
monitor, which gives me excellent intelligibility at low to moderate
volume. Not a critical application, doubtless, but a satisfactory solution
nonetheless. Maintenance is confined to replacing the rechargeable
