[mythtv-users] PVR350, CC, and mythdvd

Thanks for the info and I have looked into these options already.  It sounds 
like I need to explain things a little better.  We use a tvguardian to 
filter some of the language in our movies.  This allows us to watch movies 
as a family that we wouldn't normally watch.  This only works off the CC/VBI 
data.  If I can't get this working, my little project appears to be a bust 
and the DVD player has to go back in.  If nobody has this working on the 
350, does anyone have other options that do work?
