I have a noisy neighbour who likes to play music at all hours. I'm kinda broke and can't afford a decent pair of noise cancellation headphones. I picked up a cheap pair of refurbished Turtle Beach X31's and I was wondering if it was possible to use them through my TV or Pace DVR without using my sons x-box. I already have my Symphonic Tv hooked up to my Magnavox VCR/DVD recorder and the pace DVR so I can record my TV Shows. I tried fiddling around with it but I don't know if I can have all that connected and still connect the X31's
Is there a cable I can purchase to make it work?
Thank you for your time
Pictures, Videos and/or links would help as I am not very technically inclined...
I have included picture links to all my hardware:

According to: Frequently Asked Questions — Ear Force® X31 http://www.turtlebeach.com/products/legacy-products/ear-force-x31.aspx

Can I use the X31 for listening to movies, TV and music?
Yes, the X31 delivers home-theater quality sound and is perfect for listening to DVD movies. Just connect the X31 to the analog stereo outputs on your DVD player instead of to your XBOX. You’ll be surprised how much it improves the movie watching experience because you’ll hear subtle sounds that are missed on speakers. You can also listen to music or your TV by connecting the transmitter input to the headphone jack on your TV, iPod or MP3 player.

Yeah, I read that already though. Thank you for the reply regardless.
The only cable it comes with is a USB cable and a red and white piggyback cable.
I've tried numerous combos but nothing has seemed to work so I'm obviously missing something.
I'd like to be walked through it with step by step instructions using either a video or pictures
by someone who has been successful in getting them to work sans XBOX.
