Orange coaxial audio to RCA red and white?

  1. Can I adapt a orange coaxial output (see pic if i have the wrong name for it) to red and white RCA connectors so our TV can output sound from all devices to headphones? I believe our TV is a magnavox e10839 and the only way for it to put out audio from all devices is that orange coaxial connector if i remember the manual correctly.

    That is a digital audio output, I'm not sure that hooking headphones to it would work unless it also passes some type of analog stream.

    That's digital coax - you'll need something to convert that digital signal to an analog one if you plan to use red/white. The digital coax signal is a vastly superior to an analog signal you'll get from that device. The only option I can think of off hand is to pass it through a receiver.
