Hello,


I know this topics has been discussed many many times here.


I just want to know whether there is updated fix or workaround

available.


I have a 5040 with S-video output to my TV. I have also connected a

amplifier for the coax input to the RTV. So, I believe the input signal should

be strong enough.


Before connecting to the TV via S-video, I have the old GI cable box

with the composite output to the TV. Sometimes the CC would

be available for some Ch. like Food Network and other movies channels.

I have never gotten any CC for CBS, NBC and ABC, etc.


After getting a new cable box (MOT DCT5100) connecting to the TV

via S-video, it seems that there is no CC available, even the Food Network.


Is there any known issue with CC and S-video (and/or DCT5100) to RTV?


Since then, I have tried the cold/warn boot for the RTV, but the CC

has never been come back.


The SW version in my RTV is 530510190.


Any help is appreciated.

The closed caption option is turned on in a special menu that is accessed by turning the unit off, then pressing the menu button, you will then see the CC enable choice.

Well, from another thread, I found that I can have my

cable box to display the CC instead of the TV.


I will use this as the current workaround then.


Hope others can help to find a better solution.

Yeah, it's an internal part that would take the CC data from the source and convert it (like the video and audio) into a digital stream that is saved to the hard disk. Apparently something in the encoder stage isn't working correctly. At least that's what Lyndon has said.
