If your receiver is saying you only have analog, it must not be able to see the optical input. Check your optical cable, maybe it is damaged or not tight.

Have you tried the another optical cable? They don't tolerate dirty connections or small-radius bends in their routing. THAT (and the expense of optical cables) is why I always choose coaxial connections when possible.

I have audio cables going from HD 61g887 jvc tv, to my phillips surround sound system under aux but it is not giving me sound?

you didn't mentioned the model number of your surround sound system, for a better solution its important. any why try the following.

if you are connected the analog audio output of your tv to the system using RCA cable, then go to the setup of the surround sound system and change the input assignment setting from digital to analog.
If your connected the digital output of your tv to the digital input of your surround system using optical cable then, goto the setup of your surround system and change the input assignment to digital (optical) input.

if u need any further assistance fell free to contact through fixya

Need help connecting to surround sound to a vizio sound bar

did u mean connecting the sound bar to ur tv.
u didn't mentioned the model number of ur sound bar.

if u are using a satellite receiver then u can connect the optical audio out to ur sound bar's optical input or the analog audio output to any one of the analog audio input.

No sound when connecting optical cable from set top box to #4 optical input for cable tv on rear. The cable only works from the front input or the dvd input on the rear but that limits my sound fields. I...

Make sure your "Input Select" "Audio" portion of the main menu is set to "Auto" you may have it in analog thus only allowing audio from the front analog input. Also check your digital input select option as well. you may have it assigned to another source input. Go into the main menu of the receiver and you will find all the settings. Hope this helps. If you still have issues, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further.

Optical audio not working

Two inputs on this receiver (DBS and DVD) can be either optical or analog... (e.g. RCA type stereo connectors) Use the Analog/Digital button on the remote to set the proper input type for the desired input.
