iphone/yamaha connection

Iphone 8 to Yamaha RX-A700. Can I use JUST an Iphone connection to HDMI cable to receive audio and video for the TV? My goal to to watch and listen to facebook concerts from the Iphone, through the A700, into the nonsmart Samsung TV. Seems most people are using an HDMI AND USB direct into a TV. But I want to go through the receiver. Thank you.

The easiest way for me is to use Airplay via an ATV4k, thru a Yamaha A780 to the tv from my iPhone 8 Plus or iPad. However, that means you need an ATV4k . You could use lightning to USB dongle and then USB to HDMI. I use a USB-C to USB dongle to connect my USB peripherals (optical drive, flash drives, etc) to the MacBook Pro so I imagine there is a lightning to USB dongle as well as a USB to HDMI.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.
