TV to Receiver connection

We have one of the Samsung TV's with the lightweight sound output, so I was thinking of connecting the audio output from the back of the TV to the receiver. This will allow us to hear stereo through proper speakers from the full set of Freeview channels the TV receives (the alternative being the five SD channels being output from the VCR). However, there are two routes to go down. The TV outputs are optical digital, or traditional stereo analogue. The receiver accepts both. I was wondering which will likely offer the best quality for a similar run of cable. If it makes any difference I concur that comparison of coax digital vs analogue stereo pair from a DVD player to the receiver is a no brainer with only stereo sound. The DAC in an old DVD player beats the receiver conversion for stereo, but would the equivalent device in the TV do the same?

Cheers Andrew. I was looking at an excuse to give optical a try. So far I've never had any cause to use it.

Mind you, I still haven't replaced the Home Cinema front speakers yet. My old M1's are still standing in, so I have no music in my bedroom at all (I refuse to listen to it on my PC's). I really must go and audition those F1's...
