Band of Brothers Closed Caption..

how do I go about getting CC to work? Is there a option on the dvd or is it something to do with the dvd player or my tv setup?

I believe CC is for your TV, so check your TV to turn on CC.

Yep CC is a TV based thing, most TVs made in the past 10-15years should support it by default. If your TV is older than that you would need a box to interpret the signal (or actually you're probably better off just buying a new TV ). BTW some of the CC on BoB is a bit screwed up (odd characters and a few incorrect words IIRC). I didn't go back and recheck it but I imagine it's something in the code on the DVD and not something w/ the TV. Has anyone else tried it though?

Thanks for the replies, which setting should be turned on, C1,C2,T1,T2,... I tried some and still couldn't get it to display. But I only tried it on disk 6 special features.

I'll try again

I haven't tried disk 6 yet so I'm not sure about that one. I usually just use C1 myself.

It should be fairly self-explanatory in your TV manual. Other than that, the only reason Closed Captioning might not work is if you're using the progressive scan feature on your DVD player.
