Closed Captioning I need to use Closed Captioning for a hearing impaired member of my family. I can, of course, find it easily when playing a DVD movie, but I'd like to use it for broadcast programs. My cable provider tech says I should be able to access it thru my TV setup (cable box, the Yamaha RX-1300 and a Panasonic Plasma display), but I cannot find a menu to open it, nor can I find any reference to it in the Yamaha or Panasonic Owner's Manuals. Any suggestions?

Generally, remote controls for DVD systems have a button labeled "Audio". This button changes which audio track you will hear during the movie. Common tracks include English, French, Spanish, Commentaries, and occasionally Audio for the Hearing Impaired.
It seems odd for the latter audio track to be default, but clicking the Audio button until you have the plain English track should work. I would consult the manual if you have it on hand to see if your system is capable of remembering which track to start on.
VHS tapes u can't turn off Captioning as(subtitles to u) because the technology was not there yet.Captioning put on to help the hearing impair and the deaf to able to watch the movie too.Only DVD movies Discs and Blu Ray movies Discs give u this option on the main menu of the movies.
Carl, Better late than.. I think that the Polo can record the encoded closed captioning onto the HDD, but you have to have a CC equipped television to display the captioning. The newer Magnavox and Philips recorders sold at Walmart record the captioning, and have the capability to display it even on sets without the built in CC decoder depending upon your recording settings. If you get a digital converter box and connect that as the source to your Polo, you can record CC displayed on the screen if you want. tom
