Multi-Language Question for HDMI users
Posted 19 March 2009 - 12:42 PM
But more importantly, we realized when upgrading from an "S-video" cable to either the component or hdmi cable we lose the capability to utilize the cc3 option. We're a multi-lingual household, and when we watch any program on HBO (which offers 95% of their shows in Spanish & English) we can listen in spanish with English subtitles or reverse.
I know this likely makes no sense to most out there, but trust me it's a multi-lingual family compromise.
Anyhow, I'm not under any contract, and our two tivo units are close to the end of the line 4+ years on each of them. Does anyone know of a platform (Time Warner; Dish or DTV) which can fulfill this basic need? The HR20/HR21 series offers the option to go with the S-video plug, but why would I want to sign a 2 year contract etc... to buy into an SD platform?
Thanks for all advice

With HDMI, you need to use the Box's caption decoder.
Unsure if any box does CC3 though, I know they do CC1.

I went into the menus and selected Service 1, 2, 3 & 4 for CC.
Back to live TV and turned on CC.
CC worked on service 1 over HDMI, nothing on 2, 3 or 4.
The two movies I tried were The other Boylen Girl and Next. Both supposidly had Spanish subs. Was not able to get the Spanish audio to show up.
One thing I did get to work was on Pirates of the Carribean, I was able to get Spanish audio and English subs.
So, I don't know if it's Starz, a limitation of the HRs or what.
