Digital Optical Audio not working for TV sound through A/V receiver
I have a Comcast HD cable box Motorola DCH3200 with digital optical audio out. I have connected that to a Samsung HT-X50 all-in-1 A/V receiver. I have a Vizio VX32L HDTV capable of 1080i.
When I connect the optical cable, the connection isn't very tight but I can hold it in using tape. I get the red glow on the end that goes into the A/V receiver so I'm sure a signal is being passed from the cable box to the receiver. However, when I am watching TV and I have the A/V receiver set to Digital In, I get no sound through my speakers. They work fine with CDs and DVDs so I know the speakers are connected properly. The connection from the cable box to the TV is via HDMI. The video connection from the receiver to the TV is via component cables. I realize I won't get "surround sound" when watching TV but I should be able to at least get front and rear speaker sound by using Digital In, shouldn't I? Even if I get the TV speaker sound PLUS the A/V speakers, I can mute the TV speakers. Am I missing another, simple connection? Thanks very much.

Bad optical cable
Bad digital in port on receiver
Bad digital our port on Moto box
The Moto box may be only sending the audio out the HDMI. Check audio set up to see there's a setting to get the box to send the audio out both.
