Yamaha RX-A6A No Optical Output: HELP !

Just got my rx-a6a and tonight while setting it up I discovered the Audio Optical Outputs 1 & 2 are not outputting.
Could not find anything in the menus about this to enable or disable it and and how to set it to PCM 2.0 output.
I do not see the red glow emanating from the connector indicating optical output.
I am trying to feed a sennheiser TR-5000 wireless headphone system with it. The Sennheiser system only takes PCM Stereo.
P.S. I updated the receiver to the latest firmware 1.59, and still no optical output.

Any ideas ? THANKS IN ADVANCE !
Thanks !

I don't think the A6A has any optical outputs, from the manual they all look like inputs.

Seconded. No mention of optical out. Wouldn’t expect to have optical out either.

AV receivers don't tend to have optical or S/PDIF outputs. The Optical ports on the A6 are inputs and not outputs.

Use an analogue connection from the zone 2 RCA outputs on the AV receiver to the 3.5 mm jack input on the wireless transmitter.

Basically, use zone 2 for headphones if and when using that transmitter and those wireless headphones.

They are inputs not outputs.

Edit: Like others have said :)
