    In a couple of shows I watch it says on the bottom "transmitido en espanol por SAP" which translates to "transmitted to spanish by SAP." This really interests me because I have many spanish speaking relatives but I have no clue what SAP is.

    On my Panasonic TV, I have to use the on-screen menu. I select "audio" and there is a selection for "mode". Normally, it's set to "stereo", but "SAP" and "mono" are available.
