I don't have an optical cable. I used HDMI from amazon box to surround unit to tv. then I tried HDMI from surround to tv and amazon box to tv. I only get sound for dvd, and can't seem to get into surround unit settings or the tv menu for settings.

the tv should have an optical input on the back of it. you need an optical cable to connect from the back of the TV to an optical input on you amp/soundbar in order to get sound from all sources on your TV

its possible you may only have a coax audio input or RCA
