DIRECTV/removing closed captions

Posted by gma_j (My Page) on

Since my grandkids were here this past weekend our gameroom television has added the closed captions. Using the DIRECTV remote, I have tried everything I could think of to remove them. I know it has to be simple, so am hoping someone can tell me how. Thanks so much. Jeanie

What model do you have? I have an HR10-250. Try this. Pull up the Directv Central screen. Go to Messages and Settings. Then Video. Closed Cationing options should be there and you can turn it off.

RE: DIRECTV/removing closed captions

Thank you. My model D10-200. I tried to find the settings you listed by going to menu, but couldn't come up with anything to change (but I am electronic illiterate). Any other suggestions for me, remembering how little I know about this. LOL

RE: DIRECTV/removing closed captions

I just looked at the manual for the D10-200 and I didn't see anything in it about CC. So it may just pass it on through the Directv to the TV.
Have you checked to see if they turned it on in the TV rather than the Directv?
On my Sony remote there's a 'Display' button that will turn CC on and off.

RE: DIRECTV/removing closed captions

Thank you so much for another thought. I'm off to try to find the TV remote (hopefully). I have to leave in about 15 minutes, so if I don't find it right away, I will check it out when I get home.

That did it........Thank you so much,jimisham. I never would have thought about the TV as I was so into trying to figure it out from the satellite.
