Check that your TV will pass surround sound in the TV menu. If it does then all your sources connect to the TV via HDMI. The TV optical audio out to the RCA.
There may be a problem with the BD/HTS. You can certainly connect it to the TV via HDMI for picture but it might not pass audio to the TV since it expects to handle the sound itself. If your HTS does Dolby TruHD then it also has the potential to give you better sound than the RCA which won't support lossless audio.
 
New TV + Old Receiver = Have TV do the video switching, let the old Receiver do the audio switching.

So for example you have a cable TV service, do:

Set-top box --- (HDMI) ----> TV
Set-top box --- (optical) ---> Receiver.

Now true, you will have to click remote once to change the TV, and a second click to change the Receiver.
