No SPDIF output jack on new cable box

Swapped out our old Motorola STB for an Arris. Discovered that the new STB does not have an SP/DIF output jack, just the optical. That would be fine, except that our home theater system currently has the SP/DIF connected, and there's virtually no way to get to the back of the sound system, because of the way it's in the cabinet. Any ideas?

Thanks Jay---Would that work in reverse? In other words, optical cable from the cable box to the converter to the SP/DIF? (guess I can look to see if there are any specifically configured that way).
