Trying blindly is not going to get you nowhere, today's audio more complicated than ever.

Warning #1. "HT Systems" aren't very flexible, oftentimes they do 1 thing and that's it, not designed for you to hookup multiple sources to it and expect it to cooperate, unlike an honest-to-God AVR (Audio Video Receiver) with stand-alone speakers.

So no Optical, that's bad news. Your next option is HMDI ARC, both pieces must have this and enabled, consult manuals for their existence if u have to.

Last option is an Optical to RCA converter, if your HT system as LINE-IN/AUX-IN, if available this gives you stereo only, no surround.
