Rca entertainment series pip. The audio is messed up. Some channels r silent, some are in spanish, some music play but not the voices. Called cable company they said the cable is fine. Help me please.


You have a simple problem:

It can be either in the set or a cable box if you use one:

The set in the audio menu or setup menu will have a setting called SAP- WHICH is secondary audio program--it will on certain channels do exactly what you describe--Spanish for Monday Night Football and music and such.

Find it in either the box if used or the set and switch it with the remote to Stereo (move it OFF of SAP)

I am surprised the cable company did not suggest this but ......

Sound goes out for certain programs or commercials on different channels, but not all of them


Check your tv's audio settings. If there is an "SAP" button on your remote try hitting that. It stands for secondary audio program. Most manufacturers put it near the corners of the remote leaving it prone to getting hit without knowing. Most shows are broadcast with a spanish version of the audio. Hitting that button should allow you to hear it, but some tv networks do not broadcast the SAP audio making it seem like there is no audio. It usually affects more than one channel, and commercials do not broadcast SAP either.

One channel comes in Spanish all others in English


interesting! Sure you are not connected to a dedicated Espanol station? I have tried to emulate your problem but cannot succeed I can only recommend you try to tune that channel manually to another number and see if it still does it.

I am not using cable or dish...what type of antenna should i use to get the most out of the digital conversion...and is the built in converter adequate or do i need converter box?


The specs for this TV shows it has ASTC and NTSC so you do not need a converter box.
Almost all the Digital channels are broadcasted in the UHF band.
When you scan in the channels the VHF numbers will still show but the actually signal will be in the UHF band.

Have a JVC42X788 model tv. TV receives signal through basic cable. On channel 29 which is the Lifetime channel the audio is in Spanish, except for the commercials which are in English. Any idea what is...


You might want to go into the audio setup or tuning setup for the tv and make sure it's on ummm, stereo, I think, but definitely make sure it's not on SAP (see if you can find SAP somewhere in the audio/tuning setup and change it). SAP stands for Secondary Audio Program.... most stations don't use this feature, but some will put out an alternate audio signal on this for whatever reason (like another language). Hope this helps!

Recorded programs in english come out in Spanish


Make sure your TV hasn't been set for SAP (you'll find it in the audio settings menu). Second audio programming is often used to carry alternate languages, and if it's turned on you won't know it until you watch a program where it's being used. There may be a single button labeled SAP on the remote. If so, it's easy to change the TV setting without realizing it.

Spectroniq PLTV-20NW32 volume only works on some channels


Hi lisadean767,
It is possible that without realizing, your TV is programmed to receive SAP or Second Audio Program audio. When this happens, your TV responds like this: when SAP is not being broadcast, you'll receive regular program audio. However, when the SAP audio is sent along with the regular, (English) program audio, your TV will automatically switch to the SAP channel. You'll know your TV is programmed to receive SAP because you'll hear the commercials in English and any other program in English if the SAP is not being sent. 

Check and see if your tv is setup for SAP. Let me know if this helps and if I can be of further assistance, Please rate this solution.
