Hello, my name is***** to Justanswer! Give me just a few minutes to look up some specifics, I'm working on this now.

You will need to connect to that optical input, but in order to get it to work, you'll need to go into your receiver's menu, go to input setup, then input assign (digital, not HDMI). You'll want to assign the optical input to the TV source. To listen, select the TV source on your receiver, and you should be good to go. If you still have trouble, go into your TV menu, locate the audio menu, and turn the TV speakers off.

Whats up with that buddy , cant see that this is already replied to ???

For one thing you may not have anything coming out of your TV's optical out at this time so try the optical on the cable box /satellite receiver and if no optical there then it will have digital coaxial

You will NOT get surround coming out of the TV's optical , just 2 channels PCM at best

By default digital in`s are ;

Optic 1 = TV input

Optic 2 = DVR input

Coaxial 1 = DVD input

Coaxial 2 = SAT/CBL input

So use these depending on where you connect your cable and you can press the INPUT MODE button on the front of the unit to select DIGITAL as well
