Home Theatre audio to TV help

Hello guys, I'm kind of new to audio stuff so I wanted to ask a question. I currently have a SONY DAV-SB100 home theater set which includes speakers and a sub-woofer. I want to connect this system to my Samsung 52" 60hz 1080p television (I already connected the dvd player itself to the tv. DVD sound system works fine while playing DVDS), and use the sound system from the dvd player for the television's audio. Is this possible? If it is, How can I do it?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. You would use a digital optical cable to connect the TV to the receiver.
  2. My DVD player doesn't have a digital optical slot.
  3. Okay, so you want to connect your DVD player to your TV and then have your TV just bypass that data to the receiver? I guess its possible but I dont see the point. If your DVD player doesn't have digital optical, then use digital coaxial and connect to TV. Then use optical to connect TV to receiver.

    I am surprised your DVD player does not have optical output, even $15 DVD players have them. Your DVD player must be a decade old.

    Just to clarify, the coaxial cable is connected to the DVD player, and the sound system works fine while playing DVDs. I want sound system audio to replace the TV's audio. So when I watch cable television I am using the DVD's audio system. I believe connecting using digital optical will do the same thing: Works on DVDs, but doesn't on cable television(I'm not sure on this). Is this possible and how can I do this?
