Watching direct tv with sound bar

I do not have a ARC HDMI but I used the optional cable

that came with the sound bar. 
direct tv plugged into hdmi 1

sound bar hooked up to hdmi 3 

optical cable plugged in from bar to tv 

how can I get sound when I watch direct tv? Sound is fine with tv Roku applications.
