Viewing Closed Captions
The unit decodes and displays the closed captions that are broadcast with certain TV shows. These captions are usually subtitles
for the hearing impaired or foreign language translations. All VCRs record the closed caption signal from television programs, so
home-recorded video tapes also provide closed captions. Most prerecorded commercial video tapes provide closed captions as
well. Check for the closed caption symbol in your television schedule and on the tape’s packaging: .
Note:
The Caption feature does not work with YPbPr, VGA,DVI.
Not all the programs and videos will offer closed captioning. Please look for the symbol to ensure that captions will be shown.

Child Lock
This function allows TV programs to be restricted and TV usage to be controlled based on FCC data. It prevents children
from watching violent or sexual scenes that may be harmful.
Restriction of TV programs includes two ratings that contain information about the program: the MPAA rating and the TV
Parental Guidelines. The MPAA rating is restricted by age. TV Parental Guidelines are restricted by age and content.
Since a TV program may use either the MPAA rating or the TV Guidelines, both should be adjusted for complete control.
