It depends on the TV connectors. The most common is to use either the AV or S-video. In both cases you carry the video signal on one cable (either an RCA plug (yellow) or a S-video). Plug this into the appropriate video in on the TV. Then you can connect the audio. If you use the TVs speakers or a stereo receiver or amplifier, use a 2-plug (or a 3-plug including the RCA video) on each end wire (red and white for the audio) with the white wire carrying the left audio. Connect this cable to the audio outputs labeled Front on the left of the DVD player. If your TV uses PAL signal you will need to set the audio to 2-channel and the Down-Mix to Lo/Ro. Both are accessed from the On-screen menu or the buttons on the remote when a disc is in the player. The Down-mix is in Preferences 2 (Zoom + on the remote) and the Audio Channels is in Speaker Settings (Zoom - on the remote).
If you are using a multichannel (5.1) speaker system, use a couple of extra audio cables and match them to the speakers input ports (center, subwoofer, rear left and right). Set the Speaker settings appropriately. If your receiver can handle digital audio output, you can use that (get a cable) and modify the Preferences 2 section for digital audio.
If your TV doesn't have A/V inputs, you will need a converter. (If you only have RF (coax) in, get a RF modulator.) These are available at many stores.
George- I do exactly what you are trying to do. I take the outputs from my cable box (3 cables: comp video, left audio, right audio and plug them into the 8030 respective input sockets (input 1 on the back). Then I have the output video cable going to the TV. I connect the 2 audio outputs on the recorder to my stereo input for both audio channels so that the audio comes out the stereo system speakers. I use the AUX input to the stereo system for this. If you are using the RF from the source, then I think the same output from the recorder setup should work for cabling. Make sure the 8030 has all the right inputs/outputs selected in the main menu setups. I hope this helps. Jacques
I have a DAV 3101 and the sound level is much better if the optical input is used. If you use other then supplied speakers you can blow the unit up. It uses 50uF electrolytic capacitors inside the front speakers (3) TO SAVE SPACE IN THE MAIN BOX. However, my unit will shut itself off. Standby light flashes and won't turn on until line cord power is reset over nite. Too bad Oritron doesn't support their products. Their web site is poor. I couldn't find an authorized repair service. Buyer beware!
