This tv is analog, EDTV is only enhanced definition tv ,480p resolution, not the HDTV 1080i or 1080p resolution, the mts/sap tuner has to do with the audio decoder. For example: SAP would allow you to view a station broadcast in english to be heard in spanish. MTS is surround sound broadcast. Thanks

Brand new, connected to new cox cable box, video works great but no sound


if just running HDMI cable try adding audio cables too, check all your volume and mute settings in the system setup.
If you have audio on most channels, but have silence on some or all of your local network channels, you may have the Secondary Audio Programming (SAP) turned ON. Complete the following steps to turn off SAP.
  1. Press the Settings or MENU button on the digital remote.

    Result: The Settings screen displays.
  2. Choose from the following options.
If... Then... Disable SAPdisplays Press the Select button. Choose SAP Languagedisplays Use the left or right arrow buttons to choose the English setting and press Select. PREFERENCESdisplays Scroll to the Language option, select Audio, then select the option labeled Primary or the one labeled English. If the above quick fix doesn't work, there may be a problem with MTS, Stereo, or another SAP issue. Try the following:
  • Verify in the program listing guide that the program has MTS, Stereo, or SAP features.
  • Check to see if the MTS, STEREO or SAP light on the TV or VCR is on.
If the light is not on, try the following:
  • Push the MTS, STEREO, or SAP button on the TV or VCR.
  • Adjust the fine tuning on the TV set to restore the stereo or SAP.

I think that my TV soney braiva xbr has an issue with SAP but some ch. are in spanish some do not have sound How do i reset this tv?


Press MTS/SAP on the remote (under the number buttons) to go between the 3 options of STEREO or MONO or AUTO SAP. Not all channels will have SAP (secondary audio program). Selecting stereo should eliminate any secondary audio.

My wife was hitting buttons on our satellite remote and the audio no longer works. She thinks the tv is the problem. I have tried all of the Satellite volume menus and am unable to get the sound back on.


TV: check for SAP or MTS features, set them to STEREO. Also, verify that the TV Speakers are set to ON.

Cable Box: If the box has volume controls, make the volume is turned up. Also, check for the SAP or MTS feature. Again, set this to STEREO.

I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

No sound on some channels, other channels fine


Your SAP/MTS function is most likely turned on. This feature has 3 modes: Stereo, Mono and SAP. Stereo and Mono are easy to understand, it's the SAP that can get you. SAP stands for Second Audio Production. It is used to provide weather, information or an additional language translation of a program. Some broadcasters simply transmit the mono audio over the SAP audio channel when the are not using it for other purposes. Other broadcasters simply do not use it, which does not give you any audio. Look on your remote for a SAP or MTS button. If you do not see one, look in your TV user menu for this feature. If you are using a cable box, look in the audio menu of the cable box. You are looking for something set to SAP... just change it to STEREO. I hope this was helpful.

No sound in Sony Bravia


If the sound is not heard during tuner (channel) but is when using an AV input (DVD) then it is likely the Second Audio Program (SAP) has been engaged. Some SONYs simply have a button on the remote to toggle through choices, SAP is used primarily for second language transmission of audio. Either move to a PBS station or some other channel that specifies SAP programmimg or turn the choice (MTS in some SONY menus) back to "main" by either a remote button or in the audio menu.

Good luck.
