Connecting HDMI to 5.1 channel 3.5 mm audio

I recently bought a $60 Logitech surround speaker set from Best Buy, and I'd like to get it hooked up to my Blu-Ray player. Here's what I have to work with:

Speaker set: three 3.5 mm inputs, green, black, and orange
LG BD640 Blu-Ray player: HDMI out, RCA L/R out, digital audio coax out
Vizio E420VT HDTV: SPDIF optical out, 3.5 mm stereo out

Is there a relatively inexpensive way to make this work, or would it be better to return the speaker set and get a different system? I've looked at HDMI audio extractors, but those seem to be out of my price range.

Take back the system and get a decent HTiB designed for home theater use.

OK, thanks for your advice. I guess I'll return this system, save up my money, and buy one with HDMI in and out.
