Two issues with that.
1) The OP's HD TV doesn't have a built in ability to display closed captions.
He needs the cable box to turn them into open captions by displaying them as part of the video. Series 2 TiVos don't do that, and Series 3 might, but I haven't heard anything either way.
2) The OP appears to be asking about the deal between TiVo and COX to release TiVo software for existing COX DVRs. So even S3 information isn't exactly what he was asking for.
