Tv audio feed

My Panasonic tv, low def, works fine on almost all channels. One channel is in spanish, one has an npr (radio audio) on the PBS tv channel, several have no sound. None of these problems exist on any of the other tv's in the house. I've tried to rearrange the splitter feeds w/o success. Help!

You most likely have the SAP mode activated. Look for a button on your remote or an item in the on-screen menus of your television called MTS or SAP. You want to set this to "Normal" or "Stereo" (or even "MONO") mode to hear the regular television sound.

If it is in SAP (Secondary Audio Program) mode, as I believe yours is, you will hear other audio. Often this is a translation to another language, such as Spanish, and other times (notably with PBS stations) it is an unrelated audio (often music) feed.

Why am I getting Bold and the Beautiful in Spanish? I want all English in every thing. This and one other channel is coming through in Spanish. How does that happen?


Hello, Brenda -

If you had your TV audio set to SAP and Spanish, then all TV programs would come on in Spanish, if that is an option for the programs. Note: The SAP language setting is through the Menu for the TV via the Audio options.

Instead, perhaps the TV channels where you are receiving TV programs in Spanish may just be Spanish-language TV channels/networks.

Best wishes.

On one channel...PBS we do not get any sound. Sound is ok on other channels and works on the other tv in the house


This television must have the ability to broadcast channels in SAP. Look for an SAP or MTS or AUDIO button on your Sylvania remote. The audio menu might be the place to find this setting as well. You want to remove the SAP and have the tv in either mono or stereo.

My TV Sharp 26 SB1 LCD PBS channel breaks up


Do any other OTA channels break up on this TV? Look through your setup options menu for a TV reset (memory or restore default or a similar command) . Do the reset and exit the menus (save the action on most TVs); then return and rescan the OTA channels.

On a different brand of TV this worked. The channel had broken up for several weeks; the reset was used when the channel finally became totally corrupted (no video on one sub-channel, no audio on the other).

Some tuners need a stronger signal to be stable; you may need an amplifier on your antenna.

I hope one of these ideas helps.

Cable box, digital service, channels not appearing


connect the RF lead from the wall to your cable box then out from that to your dvd then out from your dvd to your tv. now connect a scart lead from the cable box to AV 2 on the DVD then connect AV 1 on the DVD to your TV if you have a second scart on your tv connect that to the cable box. NOW on the DVD select AV2 now whatever is on the cable box will be recorded onto DVD/VCR. Put the DVD recorder into VCR mode and set it to auto tune all the Digital Video Broadcasts. You cannot physically tune the cable boxes own channels into the DVD via RF it has to be via a scart.

No sound on four channels while all other channels sound is fine.


You most likely have the SAP1.gif mode activated. Look for a button on your remote or an item in the on-screen menus of your television1.gif called MTS or SAP. You want to set this to "Main" "Normal" or "Stereo" (or even "Mono") mode to hear the regular television sound.

If it is in SAP (Secondary Audio Program) mode, as I believe yours is, you may hear no sound or a different audio program. Often this is a translation to another language, such as Spanish, and other times (notably with PBS stations) it is an unrelated audio (often music) feed. On some stations there may be no sound at all with the audio mode set to SAP.

Tv guide/tuner problems


Most likely the TV Guide is broadcast from the OTA PBS channel. I don't know why its being lost. I'm thinking its probably a firmware problem of some sort. Adding the PBS channel back in, making sure the signal comes in ok and leaving the TV off for a while might help.
