Optical Audio Out converter

Hello,

I have a new LG TV with an Audio Optical Out. I bought a converter - Optical/RCA, to connect my DVD/surround sound. This is my connection so far

LG with Optical Audio Out -->converter (optical in)
LG HDMI ---> Roku HDMI
Roku --> out to Audio In on surround sound/DVD (aux)
Optical converter ---> out to Audio In on surround sound/DVD (R/L red/white)

I am left with a yellow coax in on the converter and no idea where to connect it. Sound from TV is distorted (to say the least). I do have sound now through surround sound with DVD, Roku and USB. So I made some progress!

Can someone please give me a clue...or 2?? This is the converter I bought http://www.amazon.com/FiiO-Digital-Analog-Audio-Converter/dp/B0053VKP8S

  1. The converter you purchased is a Digital to Analog audio converter. It accepts either an optical or coaxial (your yellow RCA input) digital input. Since you're digital audio source is optical, there is no reason to connect the coaxial digital input.

    You must set the digital audio output of the TV to PCM with most digital to analog converters unless they are Dolby Digital compatible.

    Thank you! Think this pointed me in the right direction. I'm not even sure I have this capability with this TV.
