In the past, I've been "semi"-sympathetic to the plight of others lamenting the numerous button pushes required to initiate (or eliminate) on-screen captioning. However, after trying to watch "Big Brother 8 After Dark" on Showtime-2 each day, and not being able to understand a lot of the whispered dialog, I too have become frustrated with the inability to instantaneously turn on captioning on my HR20-700. It seems to take many button-pushes and scrolls to navigate to the setting. I've had devices in the past (TV's, DVR's or VCR's -- not sure which) that would turn on captioning when you muted the television. I always found this feature useful for telephone calls that interrupted my viewing. So .... I for one will be looking for the "wishlist" polls to voice my NEW opinion in this regard. I am "fully"-sympathetic now to those who actually NEED a one-button toggle for captioning.
