depends on what model series 6 you have some have both Optical spdif out as well as HDMI ARC out on HDMI2, For ARC to work your sound system also has to have a compatible ARC HDMI input

Your TV has Optical SPDIF output so you can either use that with an optical cable and connect to your surround system or do as @AJT above states and use the Headphone socket out which your TV has

ajt where did you connect the headphone jack too
On my main amp box I brought a lead with male headphone jack on one end and a left and right RGB audio on the other.so connected to input L/R on 5.1 surround box..it has 5 connections out for each speaker ie front-center and left and right and surround..I brought the whole set up from amazon and added better column speakers..

Would not have been able to do my job at times without the support from you guys.
especially when we needed a bit of kit desperately or you brought the mail and scran..

Too true, but everybody that served in whichever form of service, has served with pride

I bought a soundbar instead of surround system. I have enough cables round the room and only really use now and again. I know it's not as good but might be worth a try. I plan on upgrading to one with bluetooth later in the year.
