cant figure out how to get digital audio out from the optical port of my Sharp Aquos LC 37PD5X TV! Does anyone have experience with how to configure that?

What sources are you playing? How old is the TV? Some older Sharp TVs are known not to pass HDMI sources out over optical

Thanks for reply John. I found the manual online and looks like this stupid model tv can only output audio from DTV chanel, not from HDMI or other sources -which is the main thing I wanted to use my new play base for! I deliberately choose to invest in better sound since that was my main problem with this tv, but looks like the tv itself can't play nice with sonos even though it had optical audio out. Grrr. Annoying.
There is a solution. Bypass the TV for audio using an optical switch or HDMI switch with optical out. Or get a new TV!
