Look at the section: Using Optional Audio Components.
Assuming your TV has an RCA audio output or headphone output, connect to the PC In. You might have to get an adapter. Select PC In to hear it. make sure the TV's internal volume controls are sending a "Fixed" audio output or its volume control will affect the output. Mute the TV or turn its speakers down.
Without knowing anything about your TV receiver all I can assume is that the TV has a least an RCA analog audio OUT. Run that to any available analog input on the HTS. make sure the TV's audio controls (hidden in a menu somewhere) is set to Fixed so the TV volume won't affect the HTS volume. Then you can turn the TV speakers off and still listen through the HTS.
You'll only get stereo this way. Ideally, you would have a digital audio source for the TV audio signal.
Audio can usually go either way to a TV. In or Out. Why someone would want to hear external audio through a TV's marginal audio electronics and speaker(s) is beyond me, but sometimes that is what they want.
Take the audio from the receiver via whatever unused Tape or Video function connectors you like to the TV's Audio L & R IN. Anything the receiver processes will be audible through the TV as long as you DON'T select that function for listening on the receiver.
Listening to TV-related audio through the receiver and its (presumably better) speakers makes much more sense, but again, the TV's marginally audio capabilites place a serious limitation on sound quality expectations. In your case, stereo is as good as it could be.
If your TV has Audio Out jacks, just run them to any convenient Line Level input (NOT Phono). If your TV has internal audio controls for volume, set it to Fixed so the TV's volume control doesn't affect the sound going out to the Kenwood.
A better TV-related audio solution would be to connect the BEST audio of whatever source you're watching directly from that source to the receiver. Cable, DVD/BD, SAT always have 2-channel analog RCA connectors as well as (unusable on the Kenwood) digital audio outputs.
VIDEO from the Kenwood to the TV:
You describe your TV having Composite (3 -RCA-style cables). The Kenwood is limited to Composite (Lower-quality, single Video RCA-style cable). Check your TV for a single Video In connection and run THAT from the Kenwood's Monitor Out so you can pass other video through the receiver.
In its day this receiver was pretty high-end but to really enjoy modern multichannel audio from video sources you might consider an upgrade to a true multichannel Audio Video Receiver. For one thing it would support digital audio and probably Component and HDMI video. You could still use the Kenwood's amplifiers to drive speakers or as a secondary system.
Headphone output is usually dependent on the source's volume setting and are not a good way to transfer signal between devices. RCA is the way to go as it is independent of the volume control. Many TV's have a setting for the audio output to select variable or fixed (independent of the TV volume setting). Look for it.
