I personally have on older Yamaha RX-V1000 receiver that may be similar to your own receiver connection scenario which leads me to ask another question: Why do you feel it necessary to use your TV's Audio-Out to connect to your receiver? Using the TV Audio-Out has never been a good solution for sending quality audio to any receiver. Since my receiver does audio-only, like yours, I have all of my components Audio-Out going directly to my receiver and their Video-Out going to different Video-In's on my TV. Without having a new receiver, here is how I have my components connected and it may help you:
1. BluRay Player HDMI is connected directly to my TV using it's HDMI-1 connection. This gets both Video and Audio to my TV. Until you get a BluRay player, you will need to connect your old DVD player's component cables to the TV. I also have the BluRay Player's Optical Audio-Out going to my receiver that allows me to hear surround audio. I won't get the latest audio from the BluRay DVD discs until I get a new receiver, but until then, I do get good surround.
2. My Cable Box is connected directly to my TV with HDMI which gets both Video and Audio to the TV. I also have RCA audio cables connected from the cable box to the receiver that allows me to hear stereo or matrix surround.
Your TV should have at least a few different methods of connecting your components, whether HDMI or component.
