Best way to connect components

I just bought the Samsung Q900R TV. I have never had a TV with this "One Connect Box". What is the best way to connect my system.
1. Samsung Q900R 65"
2. Yamaha RX-V675 Receiver
3. Directv box
4. Sony 4k DVD player

Currently I have everything going to the Receiver. Then single HDMI to my older Samsung 4K tv. Going to install Q900 in couple days so thought I'd ask the experts.

Is your equipment immediately next to the TV?
There are 4 HDMI inputs to the TV.
You could plug all your devices directly into the TVs ports.
Of the same way you have your old TV.
The most direct signal path the better. The lowest quality device in the chain will set the resolution.
Think about the control capability as well. Will the TV remote control the other devices?

Regardless of traditional or "One Connect" the preferable way is EVERYTHING to AV Receiver, then a single HDMI from receiver to TV.

An AV Receiver is designed as the control box to switch all of your videos/audio simultaneously. The multiple HDMI ports on the TV are for people who don't have an AVR, or special connectivities.
