Programming Harmony 880 Remote to Mute with CC on Sony Bravia KDL-40W4100

My Sony Bravia KDL-40W4100 TV has a muting option (which I have selected in the setup menu) in which closed captioning kicks in when the sound is muted. I also have a Logitech Harmony 880 remote which I have programmed to do the basic commands of the Bravia TV. However, pressing the "mute" button on the Harmony merely mutes the TV with no closed captioning. I've tried "learning" the IR command, including learning it "raw" but nothing changes. Any suggestions?

Do you use a Home Theater receiver along with your televison?  Are other components, such as a DVD player, VCR, Blu-ray player, etc. connected?
If so, it's possible that the Mute function on your remote is muting the sound from your receiver, and not the TV itself.
If that's the case, you'll need to look at the details of the "default" buttons for your activities, and see whether the Mute function is associated with your TV or your receiver.  If it's set for the receiver, you need to change it to be associated with the TV.

How can I turn off CC on my SONY 52XBR. I used the Remote control settings and selected off on the cc display, but the cc never turns off. I also used the menu button on the side of the T.V to select


If Closed Captioning is being displayed even though the CC option in the TV menu is set to Off , then it is being produced by another device, such as a cable or satellite set-top box. To remove the Closed Captioning from the TV screen, it must be disabled on the device that is decoding the Closed Captioned signal.
NOTE: Some set-top boxes may automatically display Closed Captioning on the TV screen when the set-top box sound is muted. If this is the case, turn off the Mute function of the set-top box

How do i get caption only on mute


On newer Sony TVs you press the CC button to cycle through the available settings for Closed Captions (CC): On, Off, and On when
Muting.

However, it looks like your factory remote control lacks a CC button and your TV menu appears to have a simple Off/On option for what Sony calls Caption Vision. If that is the case then you would need to manually turn on Caption Vision when you mute the television. That hardly seems like the solution you're after.

If you had an aftermarket remote control that could record macros you might be able to program it so that when you press the mute button the TV would mute and also turn on Closed Captioning. This would require the proper remote control and some expertise.

How do I turn off CC on Sony Bravia


This appears to be an repair issue.
We are experiencing the same problems. No matter what setting we use for the 40EX500, the close captioning does not seem to come on or off.
We have a HD receiver which has a setting to disable or enable. Setting to enable allows CC to be seen on the TV, but it cannot be turned off or on with the CC button on the Sony Remote. Disabling the box, then disables the CC completely on the TV.
I do not know what the issue is, and calling Sony directly is a waste of time, the holding times are unacceptable.
