Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV
I have tried all day to get the TV off of "Mono sound", and onto "Stereo" mode. No luck; so I called Sharp customer service, and he explained that because I have a cable box (Comcast) that it acts as the tuner, and the TV can no longer control the mono/stereo function.
1. Is that true?
2. Do I really need the cable box, if not, and I plugged directly into the TV,
could I get the stereo function back?
3. If, and when I get a HD/ DVR box from Comcast, will this solve my
So far I have read more bad reviews about the sound going out on these things during (non-HD) commersials, so how much of a gamble am I taking by upgrading to HD television?
No. that is not true. the person you spoke to obviously didn't know what they were talking about. you mean to tell me that everyone that has a cable or satellite box with a stereo or hd tv is not going to receive stereo sound? really,think about it. you only need a cable box( for now ) if you have premium channels (hbo,showtime etc). you can connect the cable line right into the tv if you only have basic cable. look at the back of your cable box. if you have a red, white, & yellow audio/video output, then the box is stereo.connect these outputs to your tv. this connection however is not hd.you will need a hd box with a hdmi cable for hd .To put the tv on stereo mode, there should be a way via the menu and/or the audio button on the remote to get it off mono and put it on stereo. your manual should at least show you around the settings of your tv.

Keep the TV in stereo mode to get the best sound quality. The sound will work in stereo
mode even if a certain broadcast is in mono sound only.
Choose the mono setting to reduce excessive noise on a certain channel or broadcast.
Selecting SAP will allow you to hear an alternative soundtrack, if one is available.
