Cannot turn off close captioning on MiBox

Post by john262 »

Hi. I have a Mibox 3 and the HDHomerun app works well except that I cannot seem to turn off close captioning. When I hit the down button on my remote I can see a bar along the bottom of the screen and one of the settings on that bar is CC. But I cannot open that setting. I hit the down button again and nothing happens. Does anyone know how to turn off closed captioning? And why is CC on by default?

CC wil be on if volume is at 0 (if you use passthrough, you may not realize volume is at 0). It also can be controlled by android (settings. device preferences*, accessibility, captions)


* depending on android version this step could be: device, preferences, device preferences, something else, or even nothing at all.

BTW, the button should probably be a little more obvious/persistent if it is considered on or not though that might not affect the issues I described above.
