tv has no optical input, hooking up a Samsung sound bar

I just purchased a Samsung HWC 450 sound bar.  I bought an optical cable, came home to find out my tv does not have an optical input.  So i know my tv is not the top of the line, but what are my options, or do i need to do something else?

I have an Emerson 42" lcd HDTV.  Like i said i know its a cheaper tv, but it does the job and is performing well for me.  Thanks for the help!

It does look like the soundbar has a 1/8th inch plug input, and almost all newer TV's have that as an audio output option(or RCA>1/8th). That might be your best option.

I'm NOT an employee of Best Buy, or Geek Squad, though I did work as an Agent for a year 5 years ago. None of my posts are to be taken as the official stance that Best Buy will take on your situation. My advice is just that, advice.
Unfortunately, that's the bad luck of any electronic, there's going to be bad Apples... wait that's a horrible pun.
