Optical connection

How can I connect to my surround receiver via optical cable? My new X1 DVR receiver does not have the optical port and my surround receiver does not have HDMI. It only has optical.

Can you use optical from tv to receiver instead of dvr to receiver? Optical is older technology....

I have the optical going from the TV to the receiver. For some reason, my surround receiver's screen is only showing 2 channels but it sounds like all the speakers are functioning correctly. If I use Netflix thru my LG TV app and all the speakers light up on the screen. Very strange??? See pics... The one with the 2 speaker icons was from xfinity receiver and the other was from the Netflix app.
