Is it possible to use PC headphones on my TV?>

My HD TV has a 3.55mm input jack for audio. But I use my PS3 thru an HDMI cable, is there anyway to configure the sound for that HDMI input to use the audio jack?

You can plug it to your TV, assuming you have long enough cable.

The sound of the TV should be coming out of that jack, since it should be getting the signal from the same circuit that is powering the speakers.

Right, but when I play my ps3 or 360, it is hooked up hdmi. Would that make a difference?

INput or OUTput. They are different. If you have an audio output you should be able to plug in any 3.5mm device and adjust the volume using the built-in audio controls. I've got a set of old PC speakers plugged into my TV since the built-in speakers are terribad. It does work thru HDMI, the speakers have their own power but the volume can be adjusted through the TV or the speakers. Sometimes headphones don't work properly, you may not be able to control the volume, if it works at all.

Doesn't matter you connect the audio through HDMI or just your good old RCA cables, once it reach the TV, it is going to be read as an input either way. It should be accessible to the 3.5mm plug.

most TV's have the at least the red/white RCA for outgoing sound. You could get a splitter and combine the two into a 3.5mm jack (go to Radioshack or something). However your best bet is to use your PC headphones straight from the audio source rather than the TV.
