Connecting bluray to older receiver


Nov 12, 2016
How to connect a Sony Blu-Ray disc/dvd player so older Yamaha surround sound receiver plays through my Samsung Smart TV. I have HDMI and a cable box as well.
Wo you providing more detailed info (exact make/model of components involved). Old receivers that don't have HDMI hookups... one way to deal with it is.... have the receiver switch audio and have the TV switch video... so for example instead of BluRay (audio+video) ----> Receiver ----(video)---> TV, you do:

BlueRay (audio) ----via toslink---> Receiver.
BlueRay (video) ----vid HDMI----> TV.

The receiver is a Yamaha HTR-5830
Sony Blu-Ray BDP-S3200
I can get the television to play through my 2 main speakers via the receiver, but no actual surround working through the Blu-Ray
I did purchase an orance cable, but don't see how it is working
