I have a problem with my blue-ray home theater. The sound is not coming from the speakers, only from TV. I connected my laptop "or Chromcast" to the TV using HDMI and I connected the theater to the TV with HDM too. I can see the screen of my laptop "or chromcast" on the TV but I don’t hear the sound from the speakers.

In my TV there is no Optical digital audio input.

Home theater: Panasonic SA BTT 195
TV: Sanyo DP 50843
 
Sounds like you need to convert the coax digital audio output of the TV to optical digital so you can connect it to the HTS.

TV coax digital out to converter with digital audio cable (most composite video or audio cables will work)
Converter optical audio out connects to the HTS optical input with a toslink digital audio cable.
Check the TV manual on how to turn on and use the digital audio output.

I was checking your specs on these links from CNET:

Please check again designation of your TV' RCA connections: I doublt these you've labeled as 'A' are actually outputs. If you're sure that 'B' is actually an output, you'll need coax-to-optical digital converter, plus appropriate cables on both ends.
