It sounds like your MTS or SAP mode is active, and you want to turn it back to the Stereo mode.
Depending on your setup, the TV will have it's MTS /SAP active if you are recieving TV stations, not the inputs.
If you are using a Cable or Satellite box, then that unit is actually responsible for the MTS /SAP mode.
That mode is directly associated with tuning the TV channels, so if you are using the TV remote to change the channels and you hear very little voice, your MTS/SAP is turned on in your TV set.
If you are using a Cable or Satellite remote to change the channels, then the MTS/Sap setting is in the Cable or SAT box.
If you are using a VCR to change the TV channels, it's associated directly with that.
So, here's how you get into the TV and set it correctly ---
That's all you should have to do to get rid of the loud background sounds, and restore the Voices.
Here's the reason why.....
Those background sounds are pre-recorded on the SECOND AUDIO PROGRAM (SAP) Track....
Now when nobody has ADDED spanish or french to the 2nd Audio track, you get NO voice ! Plenty of background audio, but NO VOICE.
Now, that SAP is actually controlled by the tuner, so the signal comes from the unit that you are changing the channels on....not just the TV, but ANY DEVICE used to change the Channels !
So it's simple to find the problem simply by looking at what remote you have to use to change the TV channels !
The SAP/MTS is turned off by that same remote control !
Simple eh? At least for me it is.
Hope I helped you understand.
