If possible my goal is to plug a couple of components into the new tv (sony z9d in case its connections matter) and just send the sound out to my speakers if possible. Appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction. Thanks!
Any components that are NOT sending 4K signals can still be connected through the AVR. 1080p and lower will pass through just fine.
Any 4K Blu-ray player will have dual HDMI outputs, so you'd connect the first HDMI to the display for 4K video and then run the second audio-only HDMI to the receiver for hi-rez audio. If you go optical/coaxial digital you won't be able to get hi-rez audio.
For other 4K devices, it depends on what output options are available.
Be aware that you can get a 4K compatible AVR that's as good as your 1910 for not that much money. For example for $299 you can get an X1300W which will support HDCP 2.2 for 4k passthrough as well as provide superior audio with MultEQ XT: http://www.accessories4less.com/make...eceiver/1.html
Sell the 1910 for $100-150 and you're not out that much money then you don't have to deal with any wiring shenanigans.
