I believe your TV has an Optical Audio Output.
They do make adapters to take the optical signal and convert it to analog signals.
Most convert to Stereo Analog so you would still get the three speakers working.
You could use the adapter below to then route the stereo analog from the optical converter to your three analog input cables.
There is also a Logitech Game Console Adapter.
It take a stereo analog signal and sends it to all three of your input cables.
You could get a cable that has the 1/8" stereo jack on one end to match the TV's headphone connection and a pair of RCA connectors to mate with the console adapter on the other end.

The Z506 speakers rely on your computer to decode the audio as they do not have a built in digital decoder. According to your manual for your TV, there is one optical digital output on your TV. If your TV does not downmix the digital signal to stereo (as most of them do) you should be able to get true 5.1 surround sound by using a digital to analog converter such as this one. You will have to connect the appropriate cables to the correct output on the converter. The green 3.5mm plug is for the front left, and front right speaker. The black 3.5mm plug is for the rear left and rear right speakers. The orange 3.5mm plug is for the front center and sub woofer. If your TV has a simple 3.5mm headphone jack on it, you can simply plug in just the green cable to the TV and your sub woofer and the speakers will simulate surround sound.
I hope this helps you out.

If you use the digital to analog converter that was mentioned in an earlier post you will get true 5.1 surround sound if your TV's optical audio output is 5.1. If your TV's optical audio output is 2.1 you will only get stereo sound. Most flat screen TV's downmix the audio signal to stereo as the TV's are only equipped with two speakers. There are other digital to analog converters that only have red and white RCA outputs (stereo). These converters will not produce a true 5.1 surround sound mix. The best solution for your predicament is to use the Z906 speakers which have multiple digital inputs as well as a built in DTS and Dolby Digital decoder. You will most likely have to connect the Z906 speakers directly to the source (DVD, Blu Ray) as your TV most likely will downmix the digital surround sound signal to stereo.
