    How do you enable Closed Captions (CCs) for DVDs in Windows Media Center? I have a DVD that has no subtitles, but only CCs, and I just can't seem to be able to display them!:(

    In WMC:

    Show closed captions or subtitles in Windows Media Center


    1. On the start screen, scroll to Tasks, click settings, click TV or DVD, and then click Closed Captioning. In some regions, you may need to select Subtitles instead of Closed Captioning.


    2. Under Caption Display, click either On, Off, or On when muted.



    3. After you have completed your changes, click Save to return to the settings screen.





    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    In WMP:

    To view captions or subtitles when they are available, you must turn on the "Subtitles" setting.

    Right click the title bar and select "Show Classic Menus."

    Then, select Lyrics, Captions and Subtitles > Subtitles from the Play menu. If there are subtitles that go with your video, they will show up below the video in the player.

    Thanks, tried that but it doesn't work. (see also Closed Captions - Windows 7 Forums). The does work for subtitles, but not for CCs.
