hehe ok so tonight my wife and I decide to sit down and watch Monsters Inc, had never watched it on my system since I replaced everything. So I pop it in and decide I'm gonna sit down and run the THX optimizer first for the hell of it and see how close to properly calibrated I had my TV, wasnt too bad actually for eyeballing everything on the set. Few minor changes here and there and in the process I accidentally hit the mute button for the TV no biggie I dont use the TV sound neways. So I get the lights off and start the movie and bam closed captions......I'm like what the F***????? so I go through all my menus, CC is off on the TV subtitles are off on the DVD player and still right there in front of me are the CC's so I'm like well maybe its just another problem like Sweet Home Alabama so I pull it out tell my wife I'll call Disney tomorow and we decide to pop in Romeo & Juliet. I start the movie and bam there they are again the damn Closed Captions now I'm really getting pissed cuz I know that I've watched this movie before and never had this problem. At this point I'm getting quite frustrated then Voila it finally comes to me. I'd accidentally muted the TV and with Panasonics it automatically turns on the CC's when the TV's muted so you can still know whats going on so I unmute the TV and bam they're gone! GOD I FELT LIKE SUCH A DORK!!!!! hehe oh well at least I know the problem next time hehe btw my wife laughed at me profusely hehe for those of you that own a Panasonic TV and use it as a monitor only dont let yourself become your wifes next joke to laugh about hehe.
