you need to find out what connection type is open on the receiver. Then start a search (google it) for a converter/cable to make that connection, possible site/vendor cablestogo.com. You want "HDMI to what you can use on the back of the receiver". You may find there is no such direct converter/cable at this time, meaning you may need to buy lots of converters/cables. Im not an expert and the reason Im posting is more info will be needed by someone who is. TV model and make, same for receiver with open connection jacks/kind and type noted, and everything else that may effect what you want to connect (number and type of speakers).
If you find a converter, watch out, it may turn your high priced digital sound into analog which may not run the surround sound correctly.
You may even find that the converter may need to be a Media PC.
If you find that the only input into the receiver is analog than maybe the new TV has analog sound out that you can use instead of buying a pricy converter.
If you do go the analog sound route, there needs to be a channel for each speaker. If it's 5 speakers than it is five channels, r front, l front, r rear, l rear, and sub-woofer. The more speakers the more analog channels.
