Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Normally, a TV tuner device (card/USB) is required to be able to receive and therefore watch TV program(s) on any computer. What TV/Capture card is being used? Additionally, on what Operating System and is it cable TV or aerial antenna.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Unable to access cnn website. I get a message 'Internet explorer cannot open the internet site http// Operation aborted

Hello borqcard, sounds like IE is blocking CNN due to the content advisor enabled, Or whom ever configured your router may have Cnn blocked, I would start by checking your router settings to see if CNN is blocked.

TV channel sound from a different channel

I just unplugged the tv from the power source and disconnected the cable connection and then reconnected them back after sometime. The TV started auto programming after turning on and that resolved the problem.

Try turning off the tv and unplugging it for one minute, if that doesnt resolve the issue, look into gettnig a converter box, or a signal booster to help. The tuner's in those SB model sharp televisions are not worth a penny and they need a very strong signal to be able to interpret all of your stations without problems. good luck 2 u

On CNN or during football games banner is cut off

It sounds like you're watching wide screen content on a 4:3 tv, so the screen may be zoomed in so that the bars that would normally be on the top and bottom are not showing. Because the picture is zoomed in, images that would be at the top and bottom are off the screen. If you're watching from a home receiver (Uverse, DirecTv, Xfinity, etc.) you need to change the video settings to let the receiver know that your TV's aspect ratio is 4:3 (full screen) and not 16:9 (widescreen). Also, if your channel lineup has the option of watching CNN on a standard definition channel, that would also help because the shape of the image would be what your tv was designed for. If you watch 16:9 programs, you will have to choose letter box mode (bars on top and bottom because the shape of the widescreen image does not match the shape of your tv), pillar box mode (bars on either side) zoomed, or stretched. Stretched will make the shape of everything appear distorted, as it squeezes a widescreen image on the sides to make it narrow enough, so that everyone will have tall and skinny heads like an old Kung Fu movie. The sharpest picture would likely be to watch 16:9 (hi def) content in letterbox mode (bars on top and bottom) so at least you get the proper aspect ratio that the sports were recorded in, and it comes from a sharper source (HD vs SD). I would just deal with the bars, because even with a widescreen tv, there will sometimes be bars because that's how programs are sometimes recorded, for different visual impact or cinematic effect.

If you are using dial-up to connect to the internet you might not be able to find smooth running streaming media. Try to download the videos to your pc then running them off your hard drive.
