    I recently picked up a used Kenwood 1080VR receiver so I could run my TV sound through it. I have DirecTv and my TV is a Samsung UN32M5300AF. On the rear of the DTV box there is an orange digital audio port and of course a hdmi port. On the back of the TV there is an optical cable port. I thought maybe I could get an adapter or an adapter cable but have not been able to find one. I have looked at the user manual for the kenwood but its not helpful. I'm looking for some sage advice on this. Thanks

    It's pretty simple. You'll send video to the TV from the DTV box with hdmi, and audio to the receiver with a single standard audio cable from the orange (coaxial) digital audio output on the DTV box to the corresponding coaxial input (Video 3) on the receiver. In other words, you don't route the audio through the TV.
