However, my service provider, Wide Open West (aka WOW), is in the process of going all digital, and after phase 1 of their cut over, I find that MythTV is unable to display closed captions on some, but not all, of the std def digital channels. Closed captions are there, as verified by viewing the same channels on my HDTV and recording them on MythTV at the same time. I have tried both EIA-608 and EIA-708 captions, but no joy. So, I thought I'd ask if this is a known problem in 0.23.1-fixes that's fixed in 0.24 or later.

There were quite a few fixes to EIA-708 captions for 0.24.  This is not 
meant to be assurance that upgrading will help with this particular 
issue, but it's possible it may.
