Optical out from 40LH5000 not working

I am trying to connect the TV audio to an AV receiver (Denon S530bt). There is a digital optical out from the TV and there is an optical input in the receiver.

I am trying to connect the TV audio to an AV receiver (Denon S530bt). There is a digital optical out from the TV and there is an optical input in the receiver. I have connected the optical cable, ensure the red laser light is working and switched into the receiver and assigned the correct input.
There is no audio coming from the receiver, also in the TV sound settings there is no explicit way to select TV speaker vs digital optical output speaker. There is a Digital audio output selection between Auto and PCM and that's it. Whatever I select, the sound just comes from TV speakers.

    I think on your remote, you select:
    Home | Sound | Sound Out | Audio Out (Optical HDMI/ARC) | Digital Sound Out.

    There's probably another setting you need to make on the Denon unit.
