    If your surround receiver supports HDMI input, you will need to run an HDMI cable from your MacBook Pro to it, and then from the output on the receiver to the TV.

    If you can only use fibre optic (toslink) cables to hook up to your surround receiver, you should get a mini-toslink to toslink cable and connect it to the headphone jack on your MacBook Pro, which doubles as an optical digital output.
