how do activate cc on the pvr
Hi there jll, we've actually got a document on the community for you, which shows you how to enable and disable closed captions. Take a look:
Enable/Disable Closed Captioning
Let me know if you're having any trouble though.
C C should be a menu item to turn on or off at will. If I chase a program being recorded ie start watching before completely recorded and follow existing instructions I will lose the recoding. Sometimes I find I need to use CC during playback and I don't understand why shaw blocks out my tv CC control. Annoying config.
On most of our older cable boxes, closed captions are processed by the cable box itself instead of your TV, and can only be enabled through the user menu. Definitely a little inconvenient if you enable/disable them frequently, but that's the design. On our newer PVR and HD Guide boxes though as well as the Gateway, closed captions can be enabled through the regular menu.
It isn't Shaw blocking the CC, it is the HD signal that doesn't have a way to send it to your TV - this is true of all HD programming
