I have a Samsung TV (UN50-J6200AF - bought in 2016) connected to an Onkyo Receiver (TX-SR393 - bought in 2019) with ab HDMI cable.  Also attached to the receiver is a Fire Stick and a set of 5 external speakers.  The TV is set to output to the external speakers.  All is working fine.  I recently connected a digital OTA antenna to the TV with a coax.  I want the antenna sound to go to the receiver and external speakers. 

I have communicated with Onkyo and they suggested an optical audio cable from the TV to the receiver or an HDMI from the receiver to an HDMI-ARC on the TV.  None of the HDMI connections on the TV are marked ARC.  Are they that type and just not marked?

Of these two options, which is better?  I have not tried the optical connection because I don't currently have the cable.

Any thought will be appreciated.

If the port supports ARC, it should be marked HDMI-ARC. Double check the manual

The difference with the optical audio is it won’t transmit video, but if you have the video feed already, then it's fine
