Connectivity

I have a Hisense TV model 60K390PAG which has neither Bluetooth or ARC.
 
I have a pair of Bose ER35 Bluetooth headphones which I have connected via a Bluetooth transmitter (not sure that is the right term) connected via the optical/digital/audio output on the TV and a fibre optic fly lead. It works perfectly well and mutes the TV when in use.
 
SWMBO bought me a sound bar for my birthday, which needs, I believe, to be connected either via the optical/digital/audio outlet, or via ARC on HDMI-1 (which I do not have).
 
I purchased an optical audio splitter (and 2 fibre fly leads) from Jaycar in the hope I could put it between the TV and the Bluetooth transmitter, with the sound bar connected to the other output from the splitter. 
 
Neither headphones or sound bar will recognise the TV. Both work fine without the splitter, but I need both together.
 
Is there a way to split the optical/digital/audio output successfully or alternatively a sound bar that will do the job?
 
In anticipation.
