I tried the same thing over the weekend with a PVR-250 and had success
when watching the Olympics, simply by toggling the T key. I tried other
shows (Daily Show, couple of kids shows) with no success. I'm using the
latest ATrpms version on FC3.
When watching the Olympics with CC1 on I noticed quite a pause between
what the announcers were saying and the text that was displayed on the
screen. If you're watching with the sound off it would be ok, but if
you're using CC1 as a "backup" to help you follow the show (my wife
likes to do this), it's less usable.
Anyone know if there's a setting to alter the color/style of the CC1 text?
