You must connect:
the mixer output to the "line|optical" input of the Transit
the mixer input to the line (in case of an analog signal) or to the optical (in case of a digital - optical signal)
The USB connector on the other side is going to be connected at the USB port of the pc.
Just keep in mind that the signal flow goes as the arrows on the Transit.

What is the best way to connect a Yamaha MG102c to a Canon Xha1s?

It could be the type of cables you're using. Are they balanced or unbalanced?

The jacks on the end will tell you what type of cable it is.

If the metal jack (plug) has 2 circles, it's a three-conductor plug (TRS or "tip-ring-sleeve"), which means the cable is balanced. It's meant for stereo connections.

If there's only 1 circle, the plug is two-conductor (TS or "tip-sleeve"), meaning the cable is unbalanced. It's meant for mono.

There's a 3rd kind, (TRRS "tip-ring-ring-sleeve). It has 3 circles, which makes it a four-conductor plug. The extra ring is specifically made for microphone connections in 1/8 in. This is the one you would want to use for a cellphone connection, for normal operation.

But because of what you're doing, the connections and cables have to have to be specific, otherwise you'll end up with lots of noise and interference. It's much easier if you have pictures to look at, that way it won't seem so overwhelming.

This should be able to help. If not, just let me know and I'll do what I can to help you figure it out another way.

Just purchased the mg102c, must I utilize a balanced cable to hook up my JBL powered speakers.

Yes... to get best noise performance use balanced TRS or XLR. ALSO power the speakers and this mixer from the SAME receptacle to avoid ground bounce and possible damage to the units.

My Yamaha MG102C has no sound, and all of the LED's are on. There's no inputs connected at all.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you have nothing connected as an input, you're NOT going to hear anything. I assume you can't get your inputs to get to main output fader(s), if that being the case, first make sure your gain knobs are up at about 12 o'clock position, your channel faders are up to 0 and then make sure "channel assignment buttons" are assigned to stereo outputs.

Wound the yamaha MG102c be good for a small duo or solo

Use either an amp OR powered speakers. Make sure you use balanced lines to the external amp or powered speakers and power those from the SAME receptacle source as this mixer and any pwered devices connected to it for safety of the system.

Wound the yamaha MG102c be good for a small duo or solo

The mixer is strictly a mixer. You would need to amplify to drive speakers. Used as a mixer it is fineand would support up to 4 mics.

It does have phantom power for use with condenser mics if needed.

Please use balanced lines (TRS) when connecting to the external amp.

How do i connect yamaha mixer to pc or yamaha receiver

I am sorry to disagree, but some information in the previous post is INCORRECT. DO NOT connect the output of the mixer to the MIC input. The mixer generates LINE level output that should go to the LINE-IN on the sound card. If you connect the mixer to the mic input, you will damage the sound card. MIC level inputs have an additional amplification stage.

What cables for yamaha keyboard psr295 to connect with tascam 144

There are different options depending on what you want to achieve. If you want to send only MIDI data to your PC (for example, to run a VST instrument), then you can use a standard MIDI cable to connect the "out" on your keyboard to the "in" on your Tascam. You should also be able to use the Yamaha USB cable to connect directly to your computer, which would then bypass the Tascam (still giving you the same outcome, but without the need to buy any extra cables.
However, if you want to send the audio data (i.e. the actual sound) of the keyboard to your PC, you would simply use a standard guitar lead from the line out of the keyboard into the line in (both, if your keyboard has stereo outs) of your Tascam. This will eliminate any need for VST instruments, as you will be recording the audio signal directly.
