Exclamation help with sound bar

Sorry if this is the incorrect place to post...

I have a vizio 2920w sound bar. I had it hooked to my Emerson lcd tv via the digital coax cable (orange). I was using an HD digital adapter from mediacom since they switched everything over to to digital. The sound bar was working just fine. Then I decided to move my HD cable box from the other room and hook it to this television, so out went the digital adapter, in went the cable box. My sound bar does not work now. I tried moving the orange cable to the back of the cable box.. still no go. The cable box also has an optical jack (tho my tv does not), so I tried that cable as well, still nothing. I am being told to try changing audio settings to PCM. WHERE exactly (which device) do I do this?? I can't find that option anywhere.

My cable box is a Pace dc757x
Sound bar is a vizio 2920w
Tv is an Emerson LC320EM2

I have of course checked the obvious.. changed input sources on the sound bar (the one that I'm sure I need, just flashes quickly at me, indicating that its not supported), checked that its not muted, volume up, etc. Please someone help?!

You can connect the TV to the sound bar with a coaxial cable ( from TV digital out to Digital in on soundbar)

check your tv menu and be sure you've selected correct speaker output

The sound bar also works fine when using the PS3, just not the cable box. I don't get it...
