Hdmi cable closed caption

Are you using the cable box settings (or remote) or your TV's remote to select the closed captions. When you use the HDMI cable, you need to enable the captioning on the set top box. The TV can only interpret the CC if the signal goes through the tuner (coaxial cable input). It's a matter of how they built the hardware; the cc interpreter is part of the tuner.

Which cable provider do you have? I know with some providers, there isn't a direct CC button on the remote. With them you need to go through the Settings menu to enable the closed captions. If you add a comment with your provider, I may be able to help you enable the CC if there isn't a CC button on the cable remote.

I hope this helps.

Close captioning on HDMI

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.

Do you mean the closed captioning or is it the subtitles when viewing a DVD. If it is the DVD then the subtitles need to be turned off on the DVD player. If it is the closed caption and you have a HD Comcast or other type of cable box, then the CC needs to be turned off on that device.

Turn off closed caption on input(component) on Sharp Aquos 42"

I have a Sharp Aquos 46" and go a Comcast HD receiver as well, and had the same problem turning off the Closed Captioning. I order to turn it off you need to go into the box user setting by (starting w/ the cable box and tv on) pressing the power button for the cable box then the menu button for the cable box. This will open up the user settings menu. Just toggle CLOSED CAPTION to DISABLED.

Turn off closed caption on input(component) on Sharp Aquos 42"

This is what just worked for me. If I can figure this out, anyone can :) We have comcast cable hddvr box, motorola 3416, and a new Samsung HD Plasma, but try this no matter what you have...
turn your cable box off, and THEN press menu on the box. A white screen popped up and this is where I had to scroll down to and disable the captions. I couldn't believe this worked since I thought the cables were enabled on my TV since my captions were covering my cable menus, but it was the cable. I hope this helps.
