CC is missing something bigger for me. Why does it not have an option to be activated upon muting? My TV's do, and have for years and years.
I think there was a logic behind its current design. Not every customer is as "tech savvy" as you guys. I know that CC calls number in the gazillions regarding the CC "box of death". I think they made kept the button off of the remote for a very specific reason: people hit mute in TV mode right now on the remote currently, the "box" shows up covering most of the screen (no data), and then in Sat mode they try and get rid of it. We get calls about it a lot. I personally took 10 a day, some days. I just told customers to HR the TV and its gone again, but they manage to do it over and over just to call back convinced its a receiver issue. In fact, someone posted on Satguys about the "not smart" agent who told them that was what their problem was.
On boxes with the feature, I could see it, but I still see large numbers of phone calls generated with that one button being added.
Not on the 922!!! It takes over 15 key presses to turn closed captions on/off. Unlike the 722, the 922 does not have numeric equivalents for the menu system, so you're stuck with using the arrow keys to navigate. I believe that most harmony with macro capability only support around 5 sequences.P.S. you can already do what you want with a Harmony using a little ingenuity....
Actually, this appears to be somewhat true. S3304, which was signed by the President into law late last year, does require that there be "simpler access" (not specifically the wording in the law) to CC....but I bet this is in violation of some accessibility regulation somewhere. Closed Caption on/off really needs to be a single button press.
I am not a lawyer but I bet this is in violation of some accessibility regulation somewhere. Closed Caption on/off really needs to be a single button press. I suggest using the page buttons, which currently do nothing when in full screen viewing.
