I have a pioneer pdp-435xde - I can’t get any light from a optical cable from digital out port to connect to a new soundbar? I have set the port to digital on tv- please help ???!!

Looks like page 47 of the manual shows how to hook up the cable. It does have this warning:
While in DTV mode, no signals are output if they are copy guarded.
Might be worth checking that what you're playing isn't "copy guarded"
Page 34 of the manual suggests some additional settings, which I'd make sure were off. Things like FOCUS, and front surround are only likely to muddle things being sent to the optical port.
I see in the other manual it appears to have a function to update the firmware. I'd recommend that you make sure it's current.
Yea, completely not clear. And I'd re-recommend calling Pioneer.
