I tried to switch CC to ON (Subtitles : on) in Sydney, Australia but the subtitle does not appear on all channels.
Is CC feature available in Australia ? If not, are there any workarounds ?

Thanks and regards,
Ari
As stated in this thread, CC is closed captions (US/Canada) DVB would need subtitle support which eventually will come but will require the new UI.

I read this thread, but still confused...

So does the HDHOMERUN app support viewing CC data or not?

Shows that I record with the app do have the data as the CC text displays pefectly in external apps like VLC, just nothing in the app itself.

In does in US/Canada which is what "CC" usually refers to ... most other regions use "subtitles" (not CC) and the official app does not support subtitles.

Thanks,

I wonder when this will become available? I have come from plex (they dumped EPG for AUS) and am looking for a better solution that allows me to use my HDHomeRun to record TV shows and capture the subtitles that are provided. I know if I watch the stream via VLC I can get them, but I can't seem to record and then have then shown on playback, are there any other 3rd party solutions that can do this yet? I am Australia and need the DVB subtitles (not CC).

Tvheadend supports SD HDHR tuners, and has no problem recording streams with DVB subtitles. Kodi has a good client for accessing Tvheadend servers.
