Question about Polaroid DRM-2001G DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder
I am hearing impaired. I use the closed caption feature while watching tv. I have the Polaroid DRA-1601a DVD recorder. Does anyone know of a way to get the recorders hard drive to record and show the clsed captioning feature on this unit? Dors tis unit even have such capability?
I have this machine. It has two modes of displaying the picture. You can play recordings in "progressive scan" mode or "interlaced mode". The broadcast closed captioning is only displayed when using the interlaced mode. If you use the "progressive scan" mode, the captions disappear.
You can switch modes by using the PS/IS button on the remote control.

Better late than.. I think that the Polo can record the encoded closed captioning onto the HDD, but you have to have a CC equipped television to display the captioning.
The newer Magnavox and Philips recorders sold at Walmart record the captioning, and have the capability to display it even on sets without the built in CC decoder depending upon your recording settings. If you get a digital converter box and connect that as the source to your Polo, you can record CC displayed on the screen if you want.
