I believe there was some sort of device that purported to blank the
audio in case of "undesired" content. I think it used caption
information to identify content.
I've never seen this box, and I question how effective it could be,
since the delay between the caption text and the audio is so variable.

I can't see how anything you said could possibly be interpreted as
denigrating Myth, or anything else.
Thanks for the pointer.
