You will need to find the antenna selector (usually very close to the main TV) and switch from "roof antenna" (light on) to "Park Cable" (light off).
Each time you switch, you will need to run the TV setup in order to use the correct electronic tuner built into the TV.
How the sound is routed in and out of the TV also depends on the TV.
You can have several (or NO) audio OUT depending on the model. You also may have a surround sound (digital) output capability (Fiber Optic or Coaxial RCA type socket). You would use the TV's Audio Output to route TV audio to the ZX700.
The ZX700 has a DVD player integrated that uses itself to play the DVD's audio. The ZX-700 video needs to get to the TV so you will need to hook up a yellow RCA video cable to one of the TV's video inputs and select that with the TV's source (input) selector.
If your TV ONLY has digital audio outputs you will need an inexpensive digital to RCA stereo converter box (about 10 bucks). The one I used has a link attached.
and a Tos-Link (fiber optic) or RCA cable (coaxial) TV to box, as well as a male to male RCA stereo cable box to ZX-700.
Don't forget if you use the digital out and convert to Analog, you will loose any TV generated surround sound, so you will need to change the audio setting on the Concertone so a simulated surround sound is output to the surround speakers. The DVD player in the ZX-700 is Dolby so if you play your DVD in the ZX-700 the sound will be Dolby 5.1
If you wish to hook a Blu-ray DVD player directly to the TV for HD (usually only HDMI cable), you will need to use either the TV's speakers only or route the TV's sound to the ZX-700 and disable the TV's audio in the TV's setup. NOT true Dolby hooked up this way.
The newer Genesis units (and the ZX-800) have digital inputs for true Dolby surround sound.
