Thank you for having the manual I needed for an older model Aiwa stero I had found on Ebay --- I wanted the Aiwa because I had tapes and cd's but I did not have a manual as to how to operate the system... I found what I needed and it has enabled me to set the system up for my enjoyment.
I wished detailed information of the JBL S310 and here I found it! Very happy with the service from this site!

Stereo Recording and Playback / Separate Audio Program (SAP)
Stereo Recording and Playback
The VHS Hi-Fi audio system permits high fidelity recording of MTS STEREO TV broadcasts.
When a MTS STEREO broadcast is received, the word STEREO will appear on the screen and the program can be viewed or recorded in stereo. The Hi-Fi STEREO recording procedure is the same as for normal recordings.
NOTE: When using a CATV system, stereo TV programs may be transmitted over a mono cable channel. In this case the word "STEREO" will not appear and the sound will be in mono.

When viewing an MTS STEREO TV program, or playing a prerecorded VHS Hi-Fi STEREO videotape, press A. MONITOR to select how the audio will be heard through the speakers. Normally set to the Hi-Fi STEREO position, this button can be set to the MONO position if the stereo broadcast or videotape audio is of poor quality. The "R" and "L" positions allow the audio from the Right or Left Hi-Fi channel to be heard over both TV speakers. This button has no effect when viewing a MONO videotape or TV program. Each time when you press the button, OUTPUT SELECTION display appears on the screen for several seconds. Refer to the chart below.

When the VCR is turned on or a channel selection is made, make certain the letters "SAP" appears on the screen. This means that the "Separate Audio Program" broadcasting is available.
