Hi! I acquired myself an old receiver a Denon AVR 1905 but since everything now requires HDMi connection .I'm not quite sure on how to link all these 4 devices to the non HDMi receiver & therefore I need help.

Ultimately my main goal is to get surround sound from any audio signal source that is delivered in digital audio format whenever possible.

These are the audio/video connection ports for each device.
A.Android Smart 4K UHD TV(Xiaomi Mi Tv2 L49M2-AA) *support Dolby AudioX2,DTS Express 5.1
Hdmi(1.4)×3(including Hdmi Arc)
AV rca input (L,R & composite Video)
Digital audio output:S/PDIF coaxial

B.HD Satellite Set Top Box(DVB-S2) *support Dolby Digital sound(Dolby Audio)
Hdmi output
AV rca output (L,R & composite video)
Digital audio output:S/PDIF coaxial

C.Digital Terrestrial decoder(DAC) *DVB-T2
Hdmi output
Av rca output(L,R & composite video)
Digital audio output:S/PDIF optical

D.Samsung BD-C5500 blu ray player *support PCM 2ch,PCM surround(LPCM)Dolby Digital,Dolby Digital Plus,DTS,Dolby True HD,DTS-HD MA,DTS-HD HRA
Hdmi output
Av rca output(L,R & composite video)
Component Video output(Pr,Pb,Y)
Digital audio output:S/PDIF optical

E.Receiver Denon AVR 1905 (Please refer to attached manual pdf)
Single S/PDIF Coaxial input
S/PDIF Optical input×2
S/PDIF Optical output×1
many RCA audio inputs/outputs & video inputs/outputs
also Component video inputs/outputs(HD video)
& S-Video inputs /outputs(SD video)

Google Drive links:Android Smart 4K UHD Tv
HD Satellite Set Top Box (DVB-S2)
Digital Terrestrial Decoder(DAC)
Samsung BD-C5500 Blu Ray
Receiver Denon AVR 1905

I would be grateful if any expert can advise me on the best way to set up the audio,video connections & also if any converter is needed.
Thank You.

Since the receiver has no HDMI but does have optical inputs, all you can do here is connect the optical outputs on your devices or from the TV to the Denon.
Thanks.So just connect the hdmi cables to Tv & the optical/coaxial outputs of each device to AV receiver,if thats what you mean.

In the case of HD satellite STB which is connected to Tv via hdmi cable.Whats the difference between sourcing audio directly from HD Satellite STB audio output & from TV's audio output?
