You need to purchase a converter (linked below or find a similar one) to change to digital output (toslink) from the TV into a 3.5mm male plug (which your speakers use as an input). There is no other way around it as you're using something not for it's intended purpose. You don't need to purchase a receiver, just the proper cables/converter.
Any HDMI source be it Optik receiver, Xbox, etc the Audio can be passed through via the digital output (toslink) on the TV to anything you want.
A visual reference more or less what it does.
