I have an LG Soundbar that the only ports are 2 optical inputs, and an audio port for like an mp3 player. I have successfully hooked the soundbar up to the TV through the cable box and Optical Cable, however I want sound from the DVD - which does not have an optical cable output, only 1 HDMI (which currently goes to the TV) and a coaxial. How do I do this. I thought I could use the TV like a receiver, but no optical output on the TV??

So - this product is online only (which is fine - but I was hoping to see it, as clearly I am so tech savvy) - based on what is available online, the digital co-ax port is an "out", same as the DVD player - what type of cable can I use to connect the two? Despite it being called Coaxial, its not like TV Cable coaxial unless there is a different piece that goes on the end? hopefully this is a simple fix too?
