Is there a DVD recorder that will work with digital so we get closed caption? Would appreciate any suggestions you may have to make this work.
All DVDRs must record analog CC but the TV's CC control must be turned on to see them.
The Magnavox 2160/2160A/513/515 recorders discussed here can also show and record digital CC, which I believe are the kind you're having trouble with since some/many recorders can't see or record DTV CC.
Make sure you search your current recorder's manual to see if it might be one that must be set by you to record DTV (digital) CC, like the Magnavox do.
See this help file for more info on this "difficult" subject.
See page 1 for sellers of used. refurbished and new units still available among the 7 generations of these recorders.
