Dennis,
here are some suggestions. I hope they're not too farfetched.
If the source of the TV playback is a VCR or DVD player, you can
use an RCA-style extension cable, designed for videogames.
I'm not describing the "Game Console Link Cable", because that connects
the game console directly to the TV. I mean a universal, intermediary
cable that is added onto the link cable.
These can be inserted between the VCR/DVD RCA cables and the TV.
They have a mini-jack port for headphones. If you use headphones with a
volume control, you can mute the TV all together.

If your patrons are watching live TV (as in a coaxial cable or
antenna signal), the only solution is to remove the shell from the TV and
snip some wires.

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.
