Digital Audio on wireless genie mini

I just had my direct tv installed yesterday.  I have some wireless genie minis.  There is no S/PDIF jack on the back but there is a digital audio port.  My question is, my older lcd tv does not have a S/PDIF jack so I had been using my cable box (which had a S/PDIF jack to connect to my soundbar for better audio quality.  How does the digital audio port on the back of the genie mini work.  Is there a way to connect that to my soundbar or am I stuck with analog audio?  Thanks!

Will that work for a Sound Bar also?

@Tomjb1, maybe.  But it would help to have more info about your DirecTV equipment, Soundbar, and how you plan to connect everything.
