Hearing programs in Spanish?
Your television most likely switched to SAP (second audio program) mode. Each television varies on how to switch to SAP mode. There is usually an Audio, MTS, or SAP button on your remote. Pushing this will switch the audio mode. If your remote doesn't have any of these buttons, you'll have to consult the manual for your television.
