    Do you use Sky or Cable (or freeview)?

    I'm assuming you are using the TV as the tuner since you say "no audio outputs". It looks like EXT-1 and EXT-2 have audio outs. The manual seems a bit vague as to how you change these SCARTS (which you would think would be "in") to outputs. You're probably going to need a SCART to COMPOSITE (i.e. 2xRCA for audio and 1xRCA for video) adapter (shouldn't cost a lot) and then you will be able to use a standard 2xRCA cable to your Receiver.

    See: http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/AD001.html for an example adapter.

    Page 22 of your manual talks about "Dubbing" which outputs the video and audio from the built-in TV tuner or any of the other EXT ports to EXT-2.

    The last page "Specifications" talks about the capabilities of your connections.

    Page 32 says that ...

    "The video/sound signal of a TV channel you are viewing is
    always output from the EXT-1 terminal.

    • Changing over a programme number (PR) also changes
    over the TV output from the EXT-1 terminal.

    • The video/sound signal from an EXT terminal cannot be
    output.

    • Teletext programmes cannot be output."


    If you're running any other devices as a Tuner (e.g. Sky, Cable, or a Freeview box) you should run your audio directly from them.
