It's not just an issue of the content. Yes, some HD content is not closed captioned (HBO-HD and SHO-HD), but even in the cases when it is (like in OTA-HD channels and regular DTV) the TV still won't display it if you're using the HD inputs (RGB or component). You know the CC information is there because you can view it in SD mode through the s-video or composite inputs, but not through the HD inputs. Again, it's a display device issue.
Thanks vruiz for your comments. Rudolpht - Since I don't own every single HD receiver on the market, and only the Mits HD-5, I was simply asking wither the lack of closed caption in 1080 was normal or unique to the Mits. I do like this receiver and have had no major issues with it all. And actually, I was not talking about HBO-HD, just normal OTA in 1080 mode, since I watch everything in this mode. It's still no big deal, just a question. Your right about it being an ASTC implementation issue though, no closed caption in HD is a major problem that is sure to cause trouble later on, or now if you are a hearing impaired individual.
