I thought that the statement you quoted was clear by itself - but I'll expand a bit:
The composite, S-VHS and RF outputs will normally have the same program on that you are watching on the component and/or HDMI outputs. The 8300HD does have a "Copy to VCR" function, where you can select any recorded program and save it on a VCR or DVD through the composite or S-VHS output. So, when you select this function these two outputs will now have the recording being saved.
RE: Going through the AE700 AV Receiver - I am not familiar with that particular receiver, but, in general, concerns are generally about bandwidth in the receiver, not signal level. I'll leave more specific comments to others who have specific knowledge of your receiver.
