Question about RCA DRC290 DVD Player
I have some dvds that are labeled as closed captioned and others that have 'english subtitles'. I know these are different things but I cant get my rca drc 290 to show either cc or subtitles. There is an option to set subtitles on English in the RCA player menu. This is set to 'English' (the other choice is 'off' or other languages. My tv is set to show closed captions. I set the cable hdm1 box to show cc. I wired up the tri coloured cables from player to tv and tried playing the dvds through the AV setting on the tv. Still no luck. What might the problem be? I get closed captions on the cable box butcant seem to get the player to even show subtitles. Thank you for any suggestions. Liz

Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.
The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.
The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.
One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.
If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

SOURCE: Will my rca dvd player,
It will not do this during basic playback. You may be able to use the programmed Playback. Press Program when the unit is not playing back a DVD. Then use the numeric input buttons to choose the title or track. Then use the up/down and right left arrows to enter additional titles to playback.

I hope this helps.
