Re: Unable to turn CC off
The captions are on in the dvr cable box. you cable guy can emter the menu on the box and turn it off. Some boxes will allow you access by pushing the power button on the box while tv is on then immediately pushing the menu button but be careful.

The button marked CCD "close caption display"
BTY if the TV programing is coming via cable box that the CCD feature needs to be turned off in the cable box under settings. If there is a cable remote the CC will usually be near to the "cable" button
I hope that this helps?
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
It all depends on the DISH system and the TV. For the most part the CC signal is carried on the cable from the box to the TV. Not sure how you have the DISH connected to the TV, but lets assume its HDMI. Connected this way you should be able to go into the TV settings (use the remote that came with the TV, NOT the dish remote) and go into the settings or menu. From there look for audio. In the audio menu is a section for CC. You should be able to turn it on from there. Or just check on the LG remote. They sometimes have a CC button that you simply push to turn it on. Hope this helps
You will not be able to get closed captioning by pressing the cc button on your television remote control. You must turn off the motorola cable box. Yes I did say turn off the motorola cable box. You should be standing in front of the cable box when you turn it off because as soon as it is turned off you must press the menu button on the cable box (not on the remote but on the cable box) right away. If you press menu soon enough after turning it off you will get a hidden menu. You will be able to scroll down to Closed Captioning and choose enable with the left or right arrow. Then just turn the cable box back on and you should have captions.
It has got to be the box. I would try to contact Scientific Atlanta if any way possible. The TV doesn't choose what inputs it shows CC.In other words, it would show it on all Inputs if it was the TV. Good luck and Thanks
If you want CC all of the time, this works well. But since you must power-off the cable box to change the setting, switching CC on and off is a real pain.
Your set-up is similar to mine (Sharp Aquos 46" and Comcast DVR). I have the composite output from the cable box going to a DVD-recorder and on to the TV. Whenever I need CC (usually to catch some mumbled dialog), I just rewind the DVR, and switch the TV input to the composite input. Then I switch back to HDMI to continue watching in HD.
i have the same problem with the closed captions... i believe to turn off the captions you have to use the remote. press the CC button repeatedly until closed captioning turns off. in my case i lost my remote so i am unable to use the method to solve the issue. Can someone please confirm that this works. so i can buy a replacement remote. Thx
