Problem with Displaying Closed Captions

Post by brombo » Sat Jul 01, 2017 6:59 am

I am running Kodi 17 with the HDHomerun Prime player addon on Ubuntu 16.04. Close captions parsing is enabled in Kodi. My cable company is Verizon. There is a problem with displaying closed captions on digital sub-channels-

which are many of the standard definition channels that I get on my service. What usually happens is that if I enable closed captions for a subchannel a few words of text is displayed and then no more new text. If I then disable and enable closed captions again for that channel the same text is displayed. Does anyone have any idea of what is happening. The channel I need closed captions for is WETA-UK which is a public broadcasting channel in Washington DC which shows British Television and for some the accents I need closed captions.
