Closed Captioning (CC) displays text on the screen and is usually a transcript of the program's audio.

To turn on closed captioning:

  • Press the TiVo button on your remote to open TiVo Central.
  • Select Menu.
  • Select Settings.
  • Select Accessibility.
  • Select Closed Captioning to enable.

You can also change the setting from the info page of a show. Press Info on your remote and then select the Closed Caption option. In both cases, closed captions can be toggled on or off for all programming.

Note: Keep in mind that not all programs will have closed captioning available but there is usually a CC icon at the start of programs for which it is available.
