Subject: [Videolib] Closed Captioning Problems
> Does anyone have any ideas on how videos could loose their closed
captioning when they are duplicated? We are a member of a purchasing
consortium, and the master tapes come to a central location where the
duplication is done for the group members. Many times the items say they
are "closed captioned" but I cannot get the captioning to appear on my set.
I have tried all the choices and looked up information on closed captioning.
Now I am confused! Has anyone else had problems with closed captioning?
> Most of the time the captioning is unreadable, with dropped letters,
scrambled characters, or just not there at all. On the set of tapes that I
am doing today, I really have a weird action. I can make captioning appear
for a few seconds. I discovered this by accident. As the tape is playing,
I hit rewind, then hit play and a little bit of captioning appears then it
gone. I have Caption Mode set on CAP C1 on the TV.
