Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV
I have a Sharp Aquos 42" and when I connect through HDMI, I can't turn on the Closed Caption. I have comcast as my HD provider and DVR/ Cable box service. Is the closed Caption problem on my TV or is this a HD problem? Is this something I can solve by getting a new DVR/ Cable box?
The TV will not display closed caption with HDMI input. It must either over-the-air (antenna) or composite input for the TV to manage CC.
To get CC with HDMI from your Comcast DVR, you need to configure the cable box. Instructions can be found here:
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.
