Old CRT hooked up to new Onkyo Receiver.

Hello, I have a gaming setup with 25 different systems hooked up to my Onkyo TX-NR787 receiver and Samsung 4K TV. I want to hook up my old CRT tv to the receiver so I can play light gun games like duck hunt without having to unhook a system and hook it directly to the CRT. This CRT is old and has no AV outputs, I have a RF modulator (if that helps). I know older receivers used to have a Monitor Out port for old crt's, but this receiver does not. The only outputs I can find are the 2 HDMI's, can I use one of them to display on a CRT? I tried using a HDMI to AV cable plugged into the RF modulator but got no picture. I might be overlooking something simple. Thanks for all the help.

They are two completely different signals, HDMI is digital, what you need is analog. No cable will convert the signals, that's the Chinese making money off you by selling bogus stuff. No economical way to do what you want, sorry!

But there are devices that do the conversion. I bought one from Moome for my NEC projector.

Newark electronics has a hdmi to composite AV converter for $29 bucks.
It will give you the RCA audio and video connections you need to use a rf modulator.

I get that, I was specifically referring to the OP saying he got a CABLE to convert the HDMI to composite AV. that will never work. If the $29 box isn't HDCP compliant, then it won't work either. The Moome and Fury are the only devices that are HDCP compliant.
