How much better for audio and video is an HDMI connection from the receiver to the TV compared to a composite cable connection?

If you're talking COMPOSITE, it's a helluva lot better. Like skateboard vs Corvette better.

If you're talking COMPONENT, it's still better. But more like Impala vs Corvette better

Next question: What is your video source? If you have a cable box or DVD connected to the receiver via HDMI, you won't be able to output that video to the TV over composite (or component, I think). You'll have to output as HDMI.

On the other side, note only the more expensive receivers will take convert your composite and component video to HDMI output. Less expensive ones will only output video in the same format (i.e., same type of cable) as it is input.
