I'm reasonably certain that the current answer to this is "CC decoding
(actually VBI decoding) is currently a Work In Progress on the IVTV
driver, and isn't actually usable yet."  

But I might be worng.

In any event, if you *could* capture it off the card, how in hell would
you *store* it?  Do any of the storage formats have an out-of-band
place to store it?  Or would you store it as a subtitler format fil,
for, eg, mplayer?
