Question

Closed Captions

Just purchased a HDMI 1080p TV/DVD combo....purchased this to replace my old and smaller 720p TV./DVD combo...burned DVD's that I know were captioned, and captions showed on the 720p, do not show captions on the 1080p ...guess its the resolution as the dvd's were burned and captioned in the lower resolution....on the DVD Setup of the 1080, has a line for Closed Captions, but that line is greyed out and unclickable.....guess I should have stuck with a larger 720?

Burned? Do factory DVDs work?

Factory DVD's work. The burned DVD's captions showed on the 720p TV, but do not show on the 1080p. I am trying to figure out why. Figure there is some reason why they do not work and the Closed Caption line in DVD Setup is greyed out......

So there's nothing broke.

Burned DVDs are just whatever they are. Talk to the person who created them I guess.

Thanks for your response, but I burned them myself, and as I noted they caption in 720p but not 1080p. I guess my question should have been: is there a loss of DVD captions when going to playing from 720p to 1080p?

I should be clearer. Anyone can say burn some downloaded content. In this case you talk to those that created the content to see if they have a fix. You may have to go back into the DVD creator software (not the burner software) to make a newer version for today's TVs.

Be sure the DVD player and HDTV firmware is current just in case the issue is there.

Sorry

Thank You. I believe your last sentence answered the question. The DVD's were made 10-15 years ago, so its likely the firmware used in the process. I suspect, I'll just go back to a 720p TV and give the 1080 to my mom......my old TV was a 720p approximately 3 years old...it's a 24" for the boat, so not a great loss.....
