My old Kenwood KRF-V6090D (6.1) gave up the ghost and I have inherited a Harman Kardon ARV 330 (7.1) to replace it. However I have to connect it to a newer television. What would be the best way to set this up for sound and vision? Please see attached the diagrams of both the back panels.
My assumption is:
AVR TV
Sound Coxaial In 1 SPDIF with a coaxial cable
Vision Component Video Monitor Outputs Component AV In with a component video cable

Would this work?
Is it the best option?
Are there converter boxes or the like that can covert it to a HDMI connection to the TV?

The component video plus digital audio should work fine.

It might be simpler to connect your HDMI devices directly to the new tv. Check the manual to see if it can pass multichannel over spdif to the receiver as some TVs will only do stereo.

Your plan seems okay. If you connect your players to the tv you’ll only need the receiver video for setup.

Just use digital to the avr and hdmi to the TV. I doubt his display would do anymore the Dolby 2.0 out.

The Kogan website says the coaxial digital output will pass 5.1 surround sound so HDMI to tv to receiver should be good, too.

The brand is new to me.

Couple ways to skin the cat....might depend more on what his source connections are....

If your sources have digital out, why not send it that way, one less piece in the chain. What model TV?

Because of video. Two connections means switching inputs for both the tv and the receiver for every change. I’d do the digital connections, too, in case there’s some advantage but would prefer the convenience of using the tv remote for source control.

It’s a Kogan tv. I think it’s Australian. Their website says they use the same panels the international brands do. OEM a la carte?

Fair point, but I'd allow macros to handle all that. 1 remote per person is my motto ;)
