HDMI out Receiver Problem

I just bought a Yamaha 371 Receiver and hooked everything up to my Samsung TV that is probably about 6 or 7 years old. It is a 720p DLP from roughly 2005/2006. I was going to reduce the amount of wires with this new receiver by running all of my video and audio cables to the receiver and then 1 HDMI cable from the receiver to the TV. I tried doing this but I do not get any video output when I turn my TV to HDMI. Xbox, satellite, and blu ray are all blank. When I run the video cables into the TV and keep the audio cables in the receiver everything works fine but I constantly have to switch inputs on the TV.
I was thinking that the receiver would automatically switch video feeds for me and I could leave the TV on the HDMI input.
Also my TV is old and does not support ARC...can I not use the HDMI out from the receiver to the TV and have the Receiver switch video feeds for me if my TV does not support ARC.
I have done some research but I am still lost...thanks in advance.
