I just got a new samsung soundbar to go along with my dynex and i've run into a cable problem. my tv's only audio outputs are a headphone jack and a "digital audio out" that i don't recognize, and the soundbar inputs are aux and optical. from my research, it seems like my solutions are to either get a double ended 3.5 mm cable and run that from the headphone jack to the aux input, or to get a digital coaxial cable, an optical audio cable, and a converter. What should i do?

Is this Dynex a DVD/LCD combo?
I could have sworn Dynex were optical output in LCD...
But in DVD/LCD combo, digital coax is the preferred.
I hope this isn't a DVD combo.
But in any case, the digital coax to toslink converter will sound better than using the headphone jack.
