Hello and thank you for the question.

On the back of your Sony TV, do you see a jack labeled "Optical Audio", or "Digital Audio Output"?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes there is one!

Thank you for the reply. What you would want to do is connect all of the video sources (cable box, DVD, etc.), directly to the TV, then simply run an optical cable from the TV back to the Yamaha. Let me know if you still are not getting any sound.
