Is closed captioning not working today?

I've done everything and can't get it to work. Went to menu> settings > Display> Captioning, (it's on) and closed captioning won't work not matter what program is on. Also tried it through the on screen info screen scrolling over to CC and closed captioning is on so what else can I do?

It helps to know what market, the channel, what time, how the box is connected to the TV, what model of DirecTV box, what model & manufacturer of TV.

Closed Captioning on SD boxes is handled by the TV, and on HD boxes by the Directv box, so it's essential we know the model numbers as Broe23 posted.

First thing to try is resetting your DVR/Receiver using the red button behind the front panel access card door. See if that helps. ( on side panel on H25 receivers).

The equipment (box) is an HR34-700. It's not working on any channels today.


But it was working - at this point tv is worthless without captioning unless I turn the volume up really loud. Causing everyone in the house to come rushing to ask me to turn it down lol


I'm trying the reset and see if that helps
