HD DirecTivo - close captions in 2x play?

One nice feature of the SD DirecTivos, for me, was the ability to watch the news in half of the time - just playing 2x faster adn reading the recorded close caption text, instead of audio.

Can anyone confirm this feature still exists in the new HD Tivo?

DirecTV is useless to provide such info, and want a 2yr 'commitment' to send a box, also no place to go and try it out.

Can the HD be easily expanded? External USB?

Any hacks to network, yet? InstantCake or similar?

I don't see CC when using any fast forward speed.

As to hacks, keep in mind the hardware is the same as the DirecTV HR22. It will also be a leased box - not owned equipment. Your lease agreement will state that modifications are not allowed.

The DirecTV Boxes all allow external disk expansion through eSATA. If anyone has managed to "hack" the boxes yet, I am unaware of it. Some network functionality is built in, but not as much as with the DirecTV-Plus DVRs. No streaming to another box or PC, for example.
