Close Caption

A question for one of the TiVo people that look through the forum:

I see the way to toggle (Info, then down to CC, then Select) - but is there a way to fix the location of CC to the second position in the list? Currently it floats, sometimes it's 2nd, sometimes 3rd, depending on whether you're watching live tv or a recording. If it's always in the second position, I could put a sequence in my Harmony remote (Info-Dn-Select-Info) to toggle Closed Caption and make it much easier to use.

Or is there some other way to toggle CC?

This bothers me as well.

I can't for the life of me figure out why one of the colored buttons isn't being used for toggling CC. They aren't used for anything else unless you're in a menu.

At least it's better than the last Comcast DVR I had. That thing had to be powered down to toggle CC. After a month of using that thing I bought a TiVo.

Great question. And I know the answer is yes, because I use the TiVo remote by wmcbrine, which has a CC toggle.

This makes so much sense it's scary.

Yes, there are discrete codes to turn the captions on and off. However, AFAIK, they are only available via the network interface.

I think that is the case. And I am aware that wmcbrine's network remote does the job, as does kmttg, and others.

It would just make sense to fix the CC toggle to a discrete location in the interface and not make that location dependent on what type/source show you're watching. Then, those of use with programmable remotes could create a sequence of commands to get the job done.

But if a way could be found to use one of the A-D buttons, that'd obviously be preferable.

Do the function numbers in the network interface bear any correspondence/similarity to the equivalent IR hex code function numbers? Have these CC-on/off function numbers been encoded into an IR packet and tried? This would be easy to try.

They don't have numbers in the network interface. They're ASCII string commands.
