TJT1957 - Many would like to see that. If you have an IOS device, the app easy remote has a one button toggle. The rest of it is too complicated to have any value, but the CC is there.

If you are willing to compromise - assuming you are currently HD - Connect component - set aspect to widescreen SD - Use the CC in the TV.

Re: One-button closed captioning toggling

We are a dual-language household and CC in English helps some to be able to see the spoken word along with the sound.  When one person turns on the TV and wants CC on/off they must navigate through several levels to accomplish the task.  We have been doing this for about five years now and it's just tedious.  Uverse has long been on the cutting edge of customer enhancements and this would be a very helpful enhancement for those who use CC frequently.

TJT1957 - Are you familiar with the term "singing to the choir"??

You sound like a good candidate for my suggestions. Give them a try & let me know of you have any questions.

How about a real solution without work-arounds?  Seems At&t does not want to remedy this problem, they seem to not care about their customers? I think their programmers are capable of this!
