Got an odd problem, hoping someone has some ideas...
I have two HD TiVos, using Comcast multistream CableCards, hooked up via HDMI to a brand-new Samsung UN46D6000 TV in my living room.
This TV will display closed-captions from every HD channel EXCEPT CBS and WB.
Meanwhile, my TiVo Premiere, which also uses a Comcast CableCard, is hooked up via HDMI to an older 32-inch Samsung LCD HDTV int he bedroom. That TV displays closed captions for all channels, including CBS and WB.
If I transfer CBS or WB recordings from the HD TiVos to the Premiere, I will see the closed-captions on the 32-inch TV. So the closed-captions are recorded -- but they won't display on the 46-inch TV.
I'm trying to figure out where the problem is: The HD TiVos (both of them)? The Samsung LED TV? The fact that the HD TiVos are running off a splitter? Why would closed-captions appear on most channels but not those two?
I'm ready to move all the CBS and WB season passes over to the Premiere if I can't figure this out. But I'd really like to watch most of my programs on the 46-inch TV.
