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.

Your TV displays the closed captions that are broadcast with some
television shows. These captions are usually subtitles for the hearing
impaired or language translations. All VCRs record the closed caption
signal and most pre-recorded commercial video tapes provide closed
captions. Check for the closed caption symbol in your television
schedule and on the tape's packaging: .
1 Press MENU repeatedly until you see the Setup menu. Press CH
to select "Caption."
2 Press VOL+ to open the Closed Caption menu.
3 Press VOL + to turn closed captioning on.
Misspellings and odd characters can occur in captioning. Also, there may be a
captioning delay after changing channels. Neither situation is a TV malfunction.
4 Press CH to highlight "Mode." Press - VOL or VOL + to choose
"Capt." (captions) or "Text." In caption mode, captions appear and
cover a small portion of the picture. In text mode, information unrelated
to the program, such as news reports, are displayed and
often cover a large portion of the screen.
5 If you wish, use CH , CH , or VOL + to change the captioning
channel or field. Then, press DISPLAY to return to normal viewing.
Different channels and fields display different information, such as additional
languages or supplemental information
