I have the opposite results regarding which CC scheme works.  I was using
the VBI CC by default since my remote didn't have a spare button to control
closed captions so I had to scroll through the on-screen menu to get to

I capture my video with Hauppauge cards (350 and 500) off analog cable.  The
VBI CC displays are missing a lot of the text, as though the data were being

sliced and diced as the data stream is being captured and encoded to
The ATSC captions have very few, if any such problems.

Can you (or anyone else) shed some light on this behavior?
