okay; I checked in the setup, and there is no language choice on the philco converter box; it can't be that. Next, the evidence that one time it can be in Spanish, and then the commercial comes on and it is in English seems to prove that the choice is not a language one, but something ielse. I thought at first the signal wasn't strong enough, or the rabbit ears aren't picking up a signal, but then they worked for almost a year, and now all the sudden it can't work? mYSTERIOUS.'
So now I am thinking I need a new box. The tv works fine in receiving dvd or vhs tapes. The commercials often come in, but the program doesn't. One time there will be no sound, but then all the sudden one commercial will come with sound, and then without touching anyting, another will be silent. And why would pbs 's original channel have a perfect picture, but play the sound of another pbs channel's sound? It is in English, and it's own channel also has sound, but I can't seem to find the problem?
There are no language choices on the box, and I haven't touched the tv, which would seem logical to me, since all the other channels come on in English. It is strange.
