Streaming DirecTV Audio from Genie Mini Receivers to Hearing Aid Streaming Boxes

The DirecTV Genie Mini Receivers were designed before 2013 and only have Digital Audio Out Connectors

The DirecTV DVT Receivers have Analog Audio (Red & White) Connectors Plus An Optical Digital Audio Connection

Hearing Aid Audio Streaming Boxes have Analog Audio Connections Plus Optical Digital Audio – but not Digital Connector like the Genie Mini Receiver has.

If I cannot come up with a solution I will have to drop DirecTV and switch to DISH or Cable TV

What does DirecTV Recommend???

You can buy converters between those audio formats on Amazon. But it still might not work. My wife has a hearing aid streaming box and it will provide audio if you disable Dolby Digital and use 2-ch audio.

All minis except the C61K  have an A/V output jack to plug in a composite 10pin din cable to get RCA red/white audio.
