Without model numbers we can know what connections you have.
If the Sharp has an optical "input" then why can't you connect the optical output of the TV to it directly. No DAC needed.
You would need to set the TV audio output to Bitstream.
If the Sharp doesn't have optical input then you are sending stereo to it. You will need to select a surround sound mode that will derive surround sound from that. It won't be a good a digital surround sound.
The rears won't play all the time even with surround sound content. On a lot of stuff they won't play at all.
