    Good news. I would hope they are planning on implementing an easy solution. I'm not a programmer, but it's got to be easier than DLB.:lol: The question is "Do they want to do this?" It would be great if there was some feedback. Something like "not going to happen" (g*d forbid) or "it will" and "this is the time frame".

    One would think that if the programmers can add a On Demand button in the quick Menu....it would be just as easy to add a CC button!!!!Wouldn't it???

    No, putting on a Software driven menu is just that software. Putting a button on a remote is hardware and manufacturing (night and day different)

    I think quickfire meant to say option instead of button in his original post. :) /steve

    YOU SIR are CORRECT!!!:)

    I wish any D* insider that belongs to this site would let us know if a CC option is being considered for any CE or regular software update in the near future!!

    I'm glad you did, Quickfire. I would love it if Directv would implement an easy access closed-captioning!

    I'd also like to see it a little easier to access (plus maybe make the remote response a little more predictable so I can use a macro reliably).

    Adding my voice to the chorus. While she's nowhere near old and infirm, my wife's hearing is going, but mine most certainly is not...yet. PLEEEEEASE, DirecTV, give me an easier way to let her in on the dialog I'm enjoying without shredding my center speaker or my own eardrums, thus making the CC option all the more necessary, and round and round, ad infinitum.

    (Is there an emoticon for being on one's hands and knees, or perhaps one with pleading, Precious Moments, puppydog eyes?)

    This needs to happen, as posted several times over the last couple of years.

    Similarly, why am I paying 4.99 for a movie on 136HD tonigth (Evan Almighty) that says it has CC, and yet there is nothing? Tried all 6 digital services...zilch.
