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

PREFERENCESdisplays Scroll to the Language option, select Audio, then select the option labeled Primary or the one labeled English.

If the light is not on, try the following:

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.

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.

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.
Go to
WWW.TVFOOL.COM and enter your ZIPCODE to get the stations in your area.
