I watched the basketball game last night on 13-1. The Digital Closed Captioning was working I believe for the first time. The problem I saw was that it was supposed to be captioned above the top of the screen for basketball, but for some reason, it was first captioned across the bottom and when that line was done, it would move that line to the top.
It was very confusing to watch. The other thing was that when I tried to turn off the captioning, it would not do it. The screen would flash the same old "This feature is not available now" even thou behind it I could see the captioning.
Today, the captioning is not working at all on 13-1 - but the live broadcast of the Truman arrival is on and maybe that is not digital CC.
Any ideas what's up.
Also - an earlier message from 3/20/03 said that the closed captioning on 43-1 was working, but I just checked it and apparently its not.
Also - Last night during the basketball game, I noticed bright flashes on the whole screen at random times throughout the game. I noticed them in the past on my old Sony set also. They looked like a flash camera went off, but after a while, I could tell that was not the case. Is that what they mean by "motion artifacts? If not, does anyone know what that is?
It only seems to happen during sporting evnets - at least that is the only time I notice.
Finally, I just bought a new Mitsubishi 42 set from John Chester yesterday. It does not have a tuner. Anyone have a suggestion for a good over the air tuner? It would be nice if the tuner could also decode the basic Cox Signal.
