Do you have your captioning format set in mythtv-setup for the capture 
card?  What kind of card do you have?  BTTV software based cards use the 
appropriate /dev/vbi device and PVR-250/350 cards embed the CC 
information in the MPEG file and require a recent version of their 
driver.  If you have software cards and you don't have the CC format set 
in mythtv-setup, you won't get anything.
