hi ... I need recommendations / help for getting closed captioning on dvd's. I've lost my ability to hear on phone, hear the tv. I can hear some but don't understand without closed captioning.

most dvds have closed captioning or subtitles now. That is if it's new and a major company. Or if you have online streaming services have have subtitles/closed captioning.

Look for the terms like English SDH on DVDs, BluRay and Digital HD.

Keep in mind, there is a difference between SDH and Subtitle. For instance, if a dog barks, SDH will show [dog barking in the background]. Subtitle doesn't show it. Subtitle is for hearing people who don't understand the foreign language but they can hear noise background like dog barking. CC is similar to SDH. They look like white texts on black background.

Does anyone else remember HDMI cable used to not support CC data? Ugh!

Actually, they still don't! They just started putting CC options in devices before going through HDMI instead of having TV's do the job. HDMI strips the CC information as it goes through to TV.

That's pity. I read that they won't do it because they want to preserve the high quality screen.

I use HDMI cables, I use cable box setting to turn on caption or use subtitles for DVD/BluRay on my PS4. Also streaming on TV... Works fine for me.
