I have a Truetech CR130TT8, it's worked great, but suddenly some channels are broadcasting in Spanish & some have no sound. This happened before with the spanish & I was able

Hi Jan,

This is usually a result of selecting "SAP" (Secondary Audio Program).

You should find a button or setting on the TV, remote or both that will cycle between the main audio program (English) and the secondary audio program (Spanish) every time you press / select it.

You may also find this to be a setting on your cable TV or satellite TV set top box.

I hope this helps & good luck!

There is something on some channels that is describing verbally what is happening on screen and we can't find out how to turn it off

Just look at the remote and find a button that is labeled MTS, SAP or Audio. Press this button one time and a display on your TV will show you the audio that your set is tuned to, (i.e., English or Spanish). If it shows AUDIO 2 or Spanish, press the button again until it displays AUDIO 1 or English then press ENTER or OK. With that, the audio should be correct.

Hooked up an antenna to a 55HDS69 and now I have no sound on some of the local channels what would cause this?

Most likely the set (in its menu) is set to SAP or secondary audio program==this is for channels that offer simulcast of programs in English or Spanish etc.

Look for the setting and if SAP is highlighted try to select Stereo.

No sound on a few channels. all others have sound. 26 in vizio.

Since you have sound, the audio circuits are working. The most common cause of this is to have the TV set to use SAP. There are many channels where this is an unused option and others that broadcast the same audio on the standard channel as well as SAP. If you change the channels and get Spanish rather than English for example, you have SAP turned on. Check the audio menu for SAP status.

Let us know what you find.

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.

Vizio gallivea some tv channels are in spanish and no sounds

GO into the customer menu with the remote and look at the audio settings---I would bet you will find SAP has been selected; this will give you some channels in spanish( SAP means secondary audio program) Monday night football and some other programs offer this for Spanish speaking people. Change the setting to Stereo or Mts away from SAp

I do this here for free so if this helps you give me a vote here---if you have questions or need help contact me by replying to this post.

Go into the menu and under AUDIO and make sure that the sound is set to STEREO, and not SAP (second audio program). If you have a separate setting for SAP then shut it off.
