What's the real story? Here are Amazon reviews on the Home RTX Mini:
Swabodda says "Works exactly as described. Very easy to setup. It came with everything needed to make all of the wired connections to the TV and even included self-adhesive velcro. All I had to add was the headphones."
Terra says "I bought this so I could listen to the TV in my bedroom late at night without disturbing the neighbors. I'm a little hard of hearing and the TV sits against the wall, the walls are thin and their bed is right on the other side. My bed is across a pretty long room and so I was faced with a dilemma: if it's loud enough for me to enjoy, it's also loud enough for them to not enjoy. ...This little transmitter is velcro'd to the side of my TV facing toward the speakers, and sends the most perfect audio stream over to them. There's zero delay or desync with the audio and video. There's never any issues. I can have crisp, clear talking, music, car chases, and explosions right behind my head. It took about 5 seconds to pair the speakers, the first time I did it, I had them close to the TV. Now every time I turn them or the TV on it's automatically paired. When the TV is off, the light goes out, so no annoying lights when i'm sleeping.
E. Nash says "My hearing is getting poor and I was looking for a high-quality source of TV audio so that I can watch with my family without deafening them. Purchased this along with the Miccus LOW LATENCY Bluetooth v4.1 Over-Ear Headphones, HD Sound, Ideal for TV, Movies, Games, NO LIP SYNC, Foldable with Hard Case - (SR-71 Stealth) to use with the optical audio out on my Panasonic Viera HDTV, which like most new TVs lacks an auxiliary audio out. Quality of both parts of the system is excellent. Instructions were a little sparse as other reviewers have mentioned but setup was quick and easy, less than 5 minutes to full operation. Sound fidelity is terrific with no latency at all, just be prepared for a few seconds of sync "stutter" when you first connect the headphones- it goes away in a matter of seconds. Note that on most TVs you can use optical out and the native TV speakers together with no conflict. If you use your optical out to a sound bar or other system then just use an optical splitter- no degradation of signal.

Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO I USE THE HOME RTX MINI (VIDEO)?
I'M EXPERIENCING LIP SYNC DELAY WHILE WATCHING T.V. WHY?
The Miccus Home RTX Mini supports the following 3 Bluetooth codecs: SBC, aptX, and aptx Low Latency. In order to connect with your headphones or speaker using the aptX Low Latency codec (38-40 millisecond end to end delay time), your headphones or speaker must also support the aptX Low Latency codec. If not, the Home RTX Mini will connect with your headphones or speaker using the highest quality common codec. Since all Bluetooth audio devices support the SBC codec, the highest quality common codec is typically SBC. The end to end latency for the SBC codec is 250-270 milliseconds (roughly 1/4 second of delay).
MY RTX MINI IS CONNECT TO AN OPTICAL SOURCE, BUT IT'S SET TO "AUX". WHY?
In order to hear audio, the correct audio source must be selected. On the front of the RTX Mini there are 2 audio source indicator lights. Once paired, you may select either "Optical" or "Aux" as the audio source. If your audio source is "Optical" and the indicator light is set to "Aux", select "Optical" by pushing the multi-function slider switch all the way to the right, and releasing it.
THE RTX MINI'S BLUE "M" FLASHES, BUT MY HEADPHONES DON'T PAIR. WHY?
When powering on the Miccus Home RTX Mini, the blue "M" indicator light flashes once every 2-3 seconds indicating it is in standby mode. To place the RTX Mini into pairing mode, push the multi-function slider all the to the right and hold for 3 seconds until the blue "m" begins blinking on and off rapidly (roughly 4 times per second). Once paired, the blue "m" indicator will be lit a solid blue.
WHAT DIGITAL AUIO PROTOCOL(S) DOES THE HOME RTX MINI SUPPORT?
Dolby Digital 2.0, PCM, LPCM, and other STEREO digital audio protocols have been carefully tested with major television makes and models and have been verified to work with the Home RTX Mini. If you are having difficulty getting your television to send optical audio to the the Home RTX Mini, be sure to check your television's audio output options by selecting the digital or TOSLINK output and choose the proper digital audio protocol: the Home RTX Mini does not recognize Dolby Digital 5.1 or higher.
I CAN'T SEE THE HOME RTX MINI'S INDICATOR LIGHTS. WHY?
The Miccus Home RTX Mini ships with a protective sticker over the indicator lights on the front panel of the unit. As per the owner's manual, please remove the sticker before use.
WHAT IS APTX LOW LATENCY?
aptX Low Latency is a Bluetooth codec that features an end to end latency of roughly 40 milliseconds. aptX Low Latency is the best codec to use for television audio because it virtually eliminates lip sync issues that are commonly present when using Bluetooth devices that support either the SBC codec or even the standard aptX codec. The Miccus Home RTX Mini features support for the SBC codec, the aptX codec, and the aptX Low Latency codec making it very flexible and a good match up in virtually any Bluetooth environment.
HOW DO I FACTORY RESET MY HOME RTX MINI?
To clear the memory in your Home RTX Mini:
Make sure your Home RTX Mini is powered ON.
Press and hold the spring loaded slider switch all the way to the right for roughly 6-8 seconds until all 3 indicator lights light up together, then release the spring loaded slider.
The Blue "M" indicator light will continue flashing quickly as if in pairing mode for approximately two minutes. When it begins blinking slowly again, the Mini is ready for use.
