Reboot your system. Simply shut off the box and unplug it for 2 minutes. Plug it back in and restart normal functions. If this doesn't work, give us a call to further troubleshoot.
- Why can I only see channels 2-13?Check your input settings to see if your television is set on cable tv input or antenna. If it is not on cable tv, you need to auto program your tv. If it is on antenna, you need to switch it to cable tv. If this doesn't work, give us as call.
- Why is the audio not working on some of my channels?Your audio settings may not be programmed correctly. To fix this, use your TV remote control to program your audio settings:
-Hit the menu button
-Stereo should be highlighted NOT SAP
NOTE: This can randomly change at any time on your TV. If you experience this problem in the future, this should be your first troubleshooting method.
- What is SAP and how do I correct SAP settings on my TV?SAP audio stands for Secondary Audio Program. It is used for alternate language or even Discriptive audio for Visually impaired. SAP audio is only available from select programmers, this is why some channels have audio and some do not. CASSCOMM passes through all audio that is avaible so if the programmers are using it, it will be available, otherwise you will get no audio or a buzzing sound.
Remedy- In your TV setup menu, under "Audio", you can selet "SAP" and turn it off. You may also be able to locate an SAP button on your TV remote. Sometimes there is even a physical switch on the television you have to switch. Your TV audio should then be normal. For details on how to configure your TV, you may need to consult your owner's manual.
SAP settings will be in 1 of 3 places:
1. Audio settings in the menu
2. A physical switch on the television
3. On the remote labeled SAP or secondary audio
