I hope this question isn't inappropriate for the list ...

We've received (and cannot return) six televisions that do not have
headphone jacks. This is a problem as all of our viewing stations are
out in an open area of the library. I purchased some RCA cables and a
headphone jack adapter that allows for headphone use but they do not
silence the built-in speakers.
=20
Does anyone have a solution for this?

Thanks in advance.

------_=_NextPart_001_01C713C3.35C768DD-- VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
