Question Need help with finding correct audio cable (TV to receiver)

I'm looking to hook-up my TV to my surround sound receiver and just noticed an "orange digital coaxial output" port on the back of my TV. On the back of my surround sound receiver... I didn't see a matching port at all. I was wanting to hookup my TV's audio to my receiver but noticed that I might need to buy some extra parts to make this work the way I want to. Below is the back panels of the TV and Receiver.

Back of Receiver



Here is the information I've researched so far to be able to get this to work:

(1) Digital Audio Coaxial SPDIF Coax to Toslink Optical Digital Converter
http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Coaxia...oax+to+toslink

(1) Digital Audio Coaxial SPDIF Coax Cable

(1) ToSlink cable

Will this work or can someone put me in the right direction on what I should do? Will I get sound from all my HDMI ports pushed to my receiver with this solution?

Thanks

I can't get to the picture of your TV. How about simply posting the model numbers?

I think I got to the receiver and it looks to have an optical input. If your TV has one of those, you are good to go. If it's a digital coax output instead, you'll need a coax to optical converter, which won't cost much at a place like monoprice.com.

However, most TVs do not pass DD 5.1 or DTS from external devices. Just stereo. So, unless you have a rare set that does pass through multichannel audio, or if you are only interested in sources acquired by the TV (off air antenna or Smart TV apps), using a digital connection will be no better than analog stereo.

I've fixed the images to show correctly and have also updated with more information related to what I am trying to accomplish.

The TV has a digital coax output and the receiver has an optical input. The coax-optical converter is what you need to get sound. But, it's likely to be just stereo from any devices attached to the TV.
