Use closed captioning on the Xfinity X1 is a popular streaming box that comes with a voice remote. Most often Open Captioning is only used on public service type programs. If anyone knows how to make that work, I would really appreciate it. It amazes me that Comcast does not include instructions about this. If the comcast box is hd, then you can control it from the comcast remote.
You could ask wherever you buy your new tv if they take old tvs. I have run out of ideas. Having the closed caption on at the same time really helps so I understand everything. Thank you so very very much for posting this!!!! I had no real appreciation of how important closed captioning was until I began researching these pieces. Please ensure your post is in the correct Forum to begin with. Plus if you can't turn off the closed captioning, which should be on the tv itself not the cable box you have from the model number, then you could still keep it.
These instructions seemed to apply. I have unplugged and restarted the Xfinity Cable, and the closed caption is still there. Does anybody else have this problem. If you haven't its user manual, inform me though Fixya. Check your cable box menu and make sure captions are turned off there. Power off the comcast box, leaving the tv on. I tried to call the local office but ended up in their toll-free nightmare phone menu but finally reached a person.
Which ever company improves their service in this regard is going to get some profits out of it. If choosing On, then proceed to Closed Captioning Options and select your preferred settings font size, color and formatting. Most places will take it for recycling at a cost. Where could I find someone to actually help solve this problem? Then you navigate down to captions and disable them. Want to make a video with subtitle for YouTube? This article will help you.
As far as I know, only the X1 has the voice remote so you will have to use the standard remote and menus to turn closed captioning on or off. Then you should see a Setup option. So, if anyone else has the problem I had, just be patient and don't press the Menu button too soon after turning off the box. Closed captioning is an excellent accessibility feature for those who have difficulty with hearing. Besides, we are going to introduce you with a subtitle tool if you want to add or remove subtitle in a video.
You will have to check where you could get your old tv recycled. Does anyone know if Comcast offers other stb's without a dvr which would allow me to control the closed caption dispaly? Thanks for your site, it's what got me pointed in the right direction. Now if we can just get them to come up with a simpler process to switch between and on and off cc. I tried both the Xfinity remote and the Vizio remote. Found these directions last night and used them this morning with success.
I still didn't look out the solution. If you do no have that option there, do thses steps; On your Comcast remote, press the Cable button then press the Power button The press the menu button Now, depending on what box you have, this may or may not work. Best Buy will sometimes take old tvs away for you but they have to deliver the new tv.

Went to the local Comcast office and was informed that this is indeed correct--never mind that I had the box for years and years and years with no dvr service until Comcast switched it on so why can't they turn it off now??? Use your white arrow buttons on your Comcast remote to guide the cursor to that option. Use closed captioning on other Comcast devices Not all Comcast devices are compatible with closed captioning.
Repeat the command to turn them off again. The tech told me that if Comcast comes out and it's not the box, they will charge me for coming out. For example, some Motorola stb's have a hidden menu which allows the user access to the digital closed caption options. The precise location of the menu varies by television set. The close caption will work for a few seconds and then go off and not come back on again.
