Have recorded tapes with a Mitsubishi U52 that play back in English on same, but play back in Spanish with some other VCRs. Whats up?
(Portions from: David R Mulligan (email@example.com).) It sounds like you are recording the SAP audio channel on the mono audio track, but normal on the HI-FI track. This would indicate that your television station broadcasts a Spanish dub over the SAP channel for those who prefer that language. Check the position of the audio playback source select. Also, any problem with the HiFi record or playback would also result in the VCR defaulting back to linear track playback.
