My dad has a very basic tv system setup. He has a newer Wega TV that I bought him and NO CABLE or NO DSS or anything like that...he pulls in tv signal w/ an antennae on his roof. Before I bought him the new TV, his old TV didn't even have CC (closed captioning)capability. He has trouble hearing, and that's one of the reasons I got him the new TV, so that he could use the CC. He didn't think he needed it, but now after using it awhile he is totally dependent upon having them. I want to buy him Cable TV as a xmas present....but I am worried that running things thru a cable box b4 going to the TV might make it harder/impossible to get the CC to work. I think w/ cable his TV will be set to ch. 3 or 4...and would be fed from the cable box. Does anyone know if there are any tricks to lookout for here...i just want to make sure that his CC continues to work, w/ the new cable TV. Thanks a lot.
