Hello everybody!

Being new in this forum I might have chosen wrongly, but I do have a real challenge for knowledgeable ios users.
Watch out: this is going to be tough!
I am rather hearing-impaired (quite deaf, so to speak).
My hearing-aids are mfi (made for iphone).
To me that is a fantastic experience: All audio on my iphone 8 can be transmitted directly to my hearing-aids.
Thus, without the help of other appliances I can enjoy directly e.g. music from youtube etc. etc.
Absolutely great. No words are good enough.

However, I am NOT able to get the audio signal from my tv relayed to my iphone.
I got me a bluetooth adapter (receive and transmit).
I linked (optical with toslink cable) the audio output from my tv to the bt adapter.
Unfortunately, I can only send the audio to bt speakers or bt headphones.
Obviously, my iphone would be my receiver of first choice!!!
If it only could.

Hence, dear know-it-all iphone users:
How do I make my iphone 8 receive the audio signal from my tv in live fashion???
My iphone thus will have to function as a bt headset oder speaker.

I believe to have searched the www for many many many dozens of hours.
Needless to say fruitlessly.

Anybody having useful suggestions?
Love to hear them.

Thank you very much
