Connecting a device to the STB

I purchased a BluRay player and then discovered that my Home Theatre receiver does not accept HDMI inputs. So, the only way to play the BluRay disks is through the TV speakers.
I am wondering if there is a way to connect the BluRay player to my STB/RG, which uses the optical output to connect to my Home theatre receiver.
My BluRay player does have a digital coax output as well as the HDMI output.

DWPerkins - The easy part is that the U-verse STB does not support inputs.

What are your model numbers so I can look up what input/output is available & look for a converter. Is surround required or is Stereo OK?

I can just connect the bluray directly to my TV and get stereo sound. I was hoping to be able to use it through my Surround Sound system, but that system is limited (no inputs).

Thanks for your help

So, it sounds like you have an optical input available & a COAX output. Here are some converters - http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=coax%20to%20optical%2...
