You have to go into 4 channel record mode which will drop your audio resolution down to 32khz/12 bit. You'll have to make sure the house mix is MIC LEVEL as the XLR jacks cannot work with line level audio on this camera. Some mixers can output mic level, others can't. Or, you can buy some 40db attenuators to put inline to get the line level signal down to acceptable levels for the XLR jacks.
