      Pioneer 508/Sky HD and headphones

      Hi, there may be a very obvious answer to my problem, but I can't figure it out!

      I have a Pioneer 508 plasma connected to a Sky HD box via HDMI and the Sky box is connected to an LX60 Pioneer surround sound system via optical.

      I like watching Formula 1, but my partner hates the noise, so I agreed I would buy headphones so I could listen to the races in peace.

      Problem is, my plasma is inset into the wall and regular access to the phones socket is impossible.

      To make things worse, I have the builders in at the moment and can't find the user manuals for the Pioneer stuff or the Sky HD box (and there doesn't seem to be a downloadable version from sky.com). There certainly isn't a phones socket on the Sky box.

      Anyone know if the USB socket on the front of the Sky box can be used with headphones? Any other solution?

      And why, oh why, wouldn't Pioneer fit a phones socket to their surround sound? Surely, if the surround sound disconnects audio input from the plasma when it is operating, it will disconnect the plasma phones socket as well?

      Help! Anyone have a solution?

      Oh, and the only manuals available from the Pioneer site for this product don't include an Engliash translation, for some reason!
