No, the USB is only for charging small devices or for the long discontinued AM21 or the new if ever released LCC OTA tuner.  You can get a 10 pin din cable to get stereo RCA ouputs to connect to the base station of the wireless headphones.

Hey @FBChiefs15! I apologize for delayed response. 

 

Due to copyright restrictions, if your Bluetooth is not HDC compliance, you will not be able to connect your Bluetooth to your receiver. You may be able to connect it to your TV.

 

Hope this helps.

Is there a Bluetooth dongle or transmitter that will work with the above box in order to use my Bluetooth headphones? Just switched over from Dish Network, and just had to buy a cheap transmitter that plugged into the USB on the back? This has a USB/10pin/orange digital rca like the above box! What are my options here?

Yes, you'll need the "dongle" to convert the 10-pin connector to composite video with analog RCA outputs (red & white RCA cable). You can connect those RCA audio outputs to a Bluetooth adapter.

Ok so I will need the 10 pin/rca convertor dongle as well as a transmitter? The orange digital audio does nothing, or is that an input?

You might find a Bluetooth adapter that can use the digital audio output (orange coax). But it's more likely that you find an adapter that uses the red/white analog audio connections at a cheaper price.
