Some receivers will not send digital audio to zone 2.
You could split the TV optical out. Connect one output to the receiver as you already have. Connect the other output to a 5.1 compatible DAC. Connect the analog output of the DAC to an analog input on the receiver. Select that input for zone 2. There might be a sync problem if you run both zones at the same time.
If you have a set top box with analog audio output you can use that as zone 2 audio.
