How to connect Xi6-A to receiver

Just upgraded to the xi6-A box for the 4K but the box doesn’t have optical audio like the old cable box. How to I connect the audio to my surround sound receiver?

You have to rely on hdmi connections or go back to a box that has optical connections

Doesn't your TV have an optical out port? Why not use that instead?
