I have Kodi installed both on a FireTVStick and on a Rasberry Pi (OSMC). I have installed the "unofficial PVR addon from this forum into Kodi. I've also installed the HDHomeRun Video Add-on into Kodi. I also have the HDHomeRun Android app installed on the FireTVStick.
Close captions (subtitles) work only on the FireTVStick in the Android App. In all other situations in Kodi the close captions do not work. In the HDHoemRun video add-on I've subtitles in the audio options. There appears to be no other setting to turn them on. In the PVR for HDHomeRun I see an option to enable subtitles in settings for the PVR and it is enabled. I also see an option to enable them on the subtitles menu (reached by clicking OK when viewing a show) but the option to grayed out...the only option on this menu not grayed out is "Download..." which does not nothing useful and does not seem relevant.
How do I get closed captions (subtitles) working in Kodi for HDHomeRun?

It has been a while since I have done it and updates to kodi may have changed it but, at least in the past, one must first enable parsing for closed captions (I believe it was an advanced configuration setting thus often not displayed), then enable them in the add-on (and each stream may need to turn them on again (default hasn't worked for me in years)
