    Does anyone know of any blu-ray discs that have CC and blu-ray players that support CC?

    I'm talking about actual CC here, not subtitles or SDH (Subtitled for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing). This means that you need to use the yellow video jack on the back of the blu-ray player, connect to the yellow video jack on the TV, and turn captioning on with the TV.

    I bought the Aliens vs. Predators blu-ray because it said CC on the back, but there's no CC on line 21 of the composite video coming out of my Sharp blu-ray player.

    All I want to know is whether anyone has found any blu-ray disc/player combo and been able to get good-old-fashioned line 21 CC on the composite video output.

    Thanks!

    I don't think so due digital issue, Banjo should explain about that.

    Almost all BD movies have SDH.

    Yes, it's pointless to have CC when there are rare HDTV that allow CC get in to be appear on display.

    You mean to say that there is no CC decoder built into any blu-ray players?

    Yeah, because it's pretty much the standard to include SDH tracks on Blu-ray discs these days. I know it's not the best solution, but that's what they came to.

    Well, there's no option then you have live with CC directly to TV if you need watch DVD movie with CC.

    Just add composite or S-video to TV as 2nd cable, just save for case if you need watch DVD with CC.

    That is what is so stupid! Why should we have to do all that when they can just add CC decoder into Blu-ray and they won't even notice the cost of adding it. I want the best of Blu-ray like everybody else.

    They stop supporting CC on HDTV when using in HDMI input/output only because of "digtal". As long you are using A/V you will be fine, since it still support CC. :)

    I mean A/V. No, different quality Jake. A/V good, HDMI Best. You get to experience full High Definition. A/V is old school.
