Question Connecting TV and DVD audio to AV receiver

Mar 20, 2021
I currently have my smart TV connected to my Yamaha AV receiver and loudspeakers through an optical cable and it works just fine. I intend to buy a DVD player but most these days only have HDMI output for both video and audio. My question is if I hook the DVD to the TV through HDMI would the TV automatically send the audio signal through the optical cable to the receiver or would I need to buy a separate cable to connect the DVD audio to the receiver? In that case I'd need a DVD player with coaxial/RCA outputs too as the Yamaha would only have these inputs left.
