Settings-General-Accessibility-Subtitles & Captioning-Closed Captions + SDH
If it's off, toggle on, then off again.
If it's on, toggle off, on, off.
I had no luck with that. I closed the TiVo app and every single other app, and not just the video apps, either, by repeatedly using the well-known upward swipe technique after pressing the Home button twice. Then I went to Settings: Accessibility: Closed Captions + SDH
and found the switch was at that time off. So I toggled it on and then off again. Then I opened a video stream in the TiVo app but was still not permitted to turn off CC. I next repeated the whole procedure after rebooting the iPad. The only difference was that this time the global CC setting had magically turned itself back on again. So I toggled it off, on, and off again. But the TiVo app still
would not give me permission to turn off CC. Maybe the fact that, post-reboot, the global setting springs back to on is a clue? Anyway, now I'm totally at a loss ...
