I’m connecting my tv to my home theater using an optical cable I have the port on the home theater and tv but can’t seem to find it as a source in my hometheater
 
Make sure you have the optical output turned on in the TV menu. You may also have to turn the TV speakers off.
Then check the owners manual of the HTS. On many AVRs you have to assign the optical connection (for example optical 2) to an input name to get it working.
