No Closed Caps With HDMI Cable

I use a regular cable service (not DTV) and an HDMI cable, and can't get closed captions. I have gotten some conflicting information. Some sites indicate that Sharp TV's can't get closed captions with HDMI cables. Other sites say I can get them if I have "secret codes" from the manufacturer. HELP!

The information the closed-caption decoder in the TV needs is not provided over the HDMI cable from your converter box. This means the TV's closed-captioning can't be used. But the cable box should provide closed-captioning, so check its setup menus. Contact your cable provider for more information if it's not obvious from the box setup how to turn captions on.

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.

HDMI Closed-Captioning won't go away


I bought this television yesterday, bought the HDMI cord and hooked it up through my Comcast digital cable box. Every channel would display closed captioning, despite it's supposed inability to support that function. In order to remove it, we had to turn off the cable box's ability to display closed captioning. To do that, turn off the cable box and hit menu to get to the setup menu. It is there that you will be able to turn off closed-captioning.

I have samsung tv and de comcast cable,but i try to put the close caption and isn't work,can you help me please


closed caption can be blocked by the cable box- make sure cable box is set to allow closed caption.

on the TV, makes sure CC is set to CC1.

be certain you are on a Closed Caption program...all PBS stations are Closed Caption, all the time.

I am connecting a RCA DVD player (DRC277B) to my TV and have problems when using the HDMI cable. When I connect the unit using the AV Cable, things work OK. I then turned off everything and hooked...


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Two things that will cause the “No Signal” message to come up are - no data available for closed captioning and a weak signal input. Your TV is in the Closed Captioning Mode. To turn it off simply bring up the on screen menu and scroll down to the part that says closed captioning and turn this function off! With the closed captioning block displayed and the program being viewed is not sending out closed captioning signals the TV will display, No signal!

If this doesn’t resolve your issue then the problem may be with the processor failing and it is causing a random read of the EPROM to display the not available message. I’ll suggest you to run the HDMI from the PVR (personal video recorder) directly to the TV (mute the TV), and then run the optical audio from the PVR directly into the receiver's optical in. The closed captioning is something that is addressed in analog broadcasts, but not necessarily digital broadcasts

Try using Component cables if this doesn’t make a difference. After using components cables the issue will be resolved. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

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:
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/How_to_use_a_Motorola_DVR/Setup

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.

Closed caption problem


I had the same issue... here's what I did.  If power off your cable box, then press the menu button, there's a selection to enable or disable Closed Captioning.  This works for both HD series Motorola boxes Comcast offers, at least in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  Hope this helps!

Closed caption


Closed caption wont turn off was solved by Bresnan tech. He told me the only way was to push the power button on my remote & then push the menu button right away & it would bring up a white screen & cc would be on it. I could't get it to work so I pushed the power button on my remote & the menu button on my motorola cable box & up came the screen & closed caption was on it. I disabled it & it took off the closed caption. Hope this helps

Closed captioning


I had the same problem. My DVD player was connected to my HD TV via a HDMI cable as was recommended by the DVD owner's manual. I removed the HDMI cable and attached the three video component cables. Bingo, closed caption crossed immediately.
