Answer
Do you use another device to receive television signals? (like a set-top box) Or do you use the TV's internal tuner?

If the former, does that other device have a digital output?

If the later, just get an analog-to-digital audio converter, like this: http://www.amazon.com/Menotek-Analog-Audio-Digital-Converter/dp/B0045UWXB0/ref=s

It'll convert the standard analog L/R signals to a digital signal for the Yamaha device.
