I recently acquired a JVC HR-DVS3U from the venerable lordsmurf (which I could not be happier with). However, unrelated to any capture projects, I thought I would test the closed caption functionality of the VCR because I'm a little hard of hearing -- and I can't seem to figure it out. I read the manual. The only thing it mentions about closed-captions is that Video Stabilization must be turned off for them to work. But even with that setting turned off and a CC-embedded tape in the player, I can't seem to figure out how to make them display.

Does anyone here know how to turn on subtitles?

Did you look at all the VCR menus? I vaguely remember this, but rarely used the feature (90s, 2000s).

Remember than frame TBCs will usually nuke the CC data.

You also usually cannot capture the CC data. I vaguely remember discussions about this with MPEG in ATI MMC, but again that was 15-20 years ago.

Even with TBC/DNR/Video Stabilization settings all set to off, no dice.

Are you sure the tape contains the CC data?

Yes. Tried multiple retail tapes.

I have a new theory: I always thought Closed Captions were decoded on the VCR end. But perhaps they are decoded on the television end. Perhaps there's a TV setting to extract the CC data from the composite video stream, whether it comes from a VCR, cable broadcast, etc.

Typical problems, I've lost my old CRT remote

But I'll test that theory if I find it

Yes, the TV does that.
Where were you trying to see those? VirtualDub or somwhere?

The line TBC doesn't strip CC. Frame TBC usually will. But not line. I know TBC-1000 does, don't recall about green AVT-8710.

People who do reviews like that have no skills in converting videos, They are as clueless as the people in the "Legacy Box" who use the same devices.

Even worse -- it was a Russian spammer. Banned.

That page is 100% worthless.
The pros/cons are laughably inept stupidity.
Post left for posterity.
