Is it a MC130 or a MX130?

If the TV has RCA connections marked "audio out" you can go from those to the pre/amp processor audio in. Usually, this will disconnect the TVs internal speakers.
However, if the audio outs are variable then you would have to set the volume with the TV volume control. Some TVs have a fixed audio out connection. That would be the one to use if yours has it.
Hope this helps
With the MX130 you are limited to composite or S-video for the video connections. But as mentioned above you can run the Left and Right out on the TV to the TV inputs on the MX130. If you have done this and still am not getting sound make sure that the TV has the outputs "activated", some TV's have an option in the menu to "deactivate the on board speakers and activate" the outputs. I have owned the C39 which was basically the same as the MX130, then I went to the MX132. But the Mcintosh pattern of doing things has remained the same for a number of models, once you get in thier logic, the others seem unlogical. One last question and this is not ment to insult you, do you have the owners manual if not www.berners.ch has the MX130 available to print off at no charge. Good luck the MX130 is a well built component. As far as hooking up the Oppo use the analog six channel outs to the MX130 six channel inputs. And use the component video direct to the TV.
