Hi there, wjohnc,
Welcome to our Best Buy forum community! We know that you're excited to get your receiver hooked up to your new TV, so while I'm sad that you ran into some complications during set-up, I'm glad you thought to reach out to us for help.
However, I'm struggling to locate that TV model as well. Would you mind checking the model number again to see if it's 50LF711U20? That's the closest model I could find to the one you listed.
Once I have that info, I'll be happy to look into this further. Otherwise, you can try contacting Toshiba's support number at (800) 457-7777, to see if they have tips to help with that model.

That is curious. You are probably correct that the C and U designate country, but the Digital Optical Audio Jack should be the same.
Is it possible your trying to put it in the Ethernet Port? But I am assuming you know the difference but it is question that should be asked.
On another note, I would suggest connecting the TV to your receiver via the HDMI Arc from your TV to your receiver.
Digital Optical is great but HDMI can pass higher quality audio to your receiver.
My new TV I purchased for our kids party room (so to speak) is the first time I have hooked anything up with HDMI Arc. My previous Home Theater in that location I had used Digital Optical
HDMI Arc when coupled with a receiver built for home theater allows you to plug everything into the receiver and then have a single HDMI Cable running to the TV.

Hello again, wjohnc,
Thanks for getting back to me with more details! While I would love to help you with this, our forum is meant to provide support for purchases made in the United States, so I'm limited in what I can do.
Since you made this purchase through Best Buy for Canada, they would be better able to provide support with your new TV. You can view the options for reaching out to our Best Buy Canada support through via their page here.
Otherwise, you can try the manufacturer, who can be reached at (800) 457-7777.

There is an adapter that plugs into that strange looking digital port (it should have come with the TV) that has a regular digital optical port on the other end. I have seen this on a few US models of TV's lately. I don't know what it's called or where to get it. If you no longer have the package that came with your TV I suggest contacting Toshiba.
