The TV only has "digital audio out" besides HDMI (which by itself isn't giving me audio). The soundbar has optical and (one hole) analog.

the TV is Dynex DX-LCD37

The full story is: Receiver, TV, cable box, and soundbar. I can get things connected so that I get sound on the soundbar with my analog CD player (through the receiver) or FM tuner, but I can't seem to get sound when the TV is on.

I tried bypassing the receiver and connecting everything through the cable box, which worked, but now I won't be able to use the blu-ray player or apple TV etc.

I'm super frustrated, having spent 5 hours trying every possible way I can think of to get this working. I can only think that I have to have some way of getting the sound from the TV to the soundbar (with the limitations that the TV has).

Any help is soo appreciated. I'm ready to take the damn thing back to Costco.
