OK, I have what I think is a unique CC problem on all FOX HD channels that I can get. I am going to give as much info as I can, and I am really frustrated to say the least that I cannot watch FOX HD prime time programming in my living room. Here are the facts:
I have two Sanyo HDTVs. One 26" and one 32". The 26" is just shy of a year old. The
32" is about two and half years old, and this is the TV that has the problem.
I watch HD over the air.
I get two local FOX network stations at my house, KVHP-DT and KBTV-DT. 90% signal
and 70% signal respectively.
CC is set to CC1.
CC is fine on both channels when watching anything other than FOX prime time
CC during prime time reverts to a small box big enough for one letter at a time which
flashes for a mili-second one letter at a time.
Every now and then, the CC box will extend out for the last couple of words of a
I was able to recieve one other FOX network station KRIV-DT out of Houston the other

All other networks and channels are fine. Local FOX stations are fine except during
I have returned all CC options to default to no avail.
I have done an add on scan hoping to have the tuner "re-learn" the channel to no avail.
I have cleared the channel memory and have done a total re-scan to no avail.
I have unplugged the HDTV and let it sit for 10 minutes or so to no avail.
The 26" HDTV CC is fine, It is not affected.
Once again, all other HD channels CC is fine, and local FOX station non network
programming is fine. Only prime time FOX programming is affected.
Sanyo customer service was useless. After explaining that I get my HD OTA, they suggested I turn on the CC on the cable box.
Local FOX engineers are scratching their heads, saying it is not us.
Network digital programming in SD on the sub channel is fine on the 32" HDTV. It just affects the HD programming.
So what could FOX be doing that is different than all of the other networks?
Fox engineers are scratching their heads, and I'm going bald from pulling my hair out.
