UN55B8000 tv no sound thru Taotronics sound bar

When I am viewing over the air content (HD channels thru HDTV antenna), my TaoTronics sound bar connected via Optical cable gets no sound.

When playing media thru the tv (sling via Roku Express that is connected via HDMI, Netflix and local movies all thru the Roku Express) all get sound thru the TaoTronics sound bar without issue.

Is this a known issue or problem that the over the air content will not transmit the sound via the optical cable?

Using the 3.5 audio connector plugged into the headphone jack works but I would much rather use the optical cable if at all possible.

And yes, I have the tv audio set to the external speaker.
