Hi! I currently own an MSI H370M motherboard and would like to get digital audio from it, so my sony AV receiver converts it to analog. The problem is this mobo doesnt have an optical port. So to try to solve this I bought a toslink optical to 3.5mm adapter and managed to connect the motherboard to the receiver´s optical input. Now i´m getting no sound at all... Already checked that my outputs were correctly set. Am I missing something obvious? Or maybe trying to pull something that is simply not possible with my current hardware?

My AV receiver:
Sony STR-K885 (I know it´s really old) This is all the technical info I was able to gather: https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/sony/str-k885.shtml

Thanks in advance!
