Hi, just joined. and just bought a vizio hd tv, 39". And the sony dvd player (blue ray) BPD-S185/BX18. No CC for dvds. only subtitles when they exist. The tv has CC for tv and AV component hookup, not for HDMI. The resolution with component is not hi def. Fortunately, it's from the big box store with the 90 day return policy. I may look for an upgraded dvd player that would offer CC, but apparently it's not out there.
My thinking is that carrying the tv from my car, climbing 39 stairs, setting it up, going online for manuals, finally finding sites such as this one, make me feel like going to small claims after compensation. The ADA is a law that says every tv sold in america after 1993 must offer CC.
It seems that the store that takes your money for hi def should make it clear that if you want the captions you don't get the hi def. Most people, it seems, are not aware, or are intimidated, or find it inconvenient to deal with this. Me too. But it seems like a worthy action to call the sellers on the carpet. thanks.
