Hi Jerry,

This actually has nothing to do with the tuner product - it's a result
of the underlying capture technology.  Component video doesn't support
sending closed captioning data, while products that just take in an
MPEG transport stream (such as the HDHR Prime) will just pass the data

So to answer your question, yes, the CC info will be preserved for the
HDHR Prime.
