There should be setting menu on tv whereby you can select RCA or optical.samsung units have automatic selectivity when you use optical cables so they will gives instant output when switched on....make sure you pull off the plastic ends covers ,they only go in one way into the connection ports.if you only have RCA leads you may have to set up the output audio on tv menu.
You can use a Optical to Analog audio adaptor (found all over the internet for under $30). You'll also need an optical cable that goes between the adaptor and TV. Be sure to set the audio output on the TV settings to PCM audio output, otherwise there will be no output.
Optical Output is not generally used for a subwoofer output, nor is it used as a subwoofer input. Please check the type of connection again to be sure. Both methods are for digital use, however, the Optical output uses an LED for digital communications at the receiver, as well as an Optical transistor to receive this input at the subwoofer. Optical connections willing have a blicking light at the end of the cable that goes to the subwoofer, coaxial(RCA) connections will not flash.

The other option is to get a digital audio to analog audio converter. One of these is http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Audio-Analog-Converter/dp/B0013LWK3A . You'll also need the optical digital cable in addition to the RCA audio cable that you have. With this you'll have to follow the manual for turning on the digital audio output on the TV (under the Sound menu) and turn off the TV speakers.
From memory, this amp does not have HDMI.
If this is the case, use an optical fibre cable for your connections.(Audio)
And if you want every thing to run through your amp you will also need to use component video cables (red/green/blue)
I would suggest the following.
Blue Ray to TV with HDMI.
HD Reciever to TV with HDMI.
TV AUDIO OUT to AMP with Optical Fibre.
This way, whatever is displayed on the tv, the sound will come throught the amp.
Hope this helps.
