Yeah, CCs are buried in a part of the video that is invisible to the user, much like teletext was in Europe.

All true. DVDs used to include CC. But since HDMI doesn't support them, most studios have stopped using them.

My point - you're never going to get CC out of a DVL-909 (LD or DVD) which is feeding an HDMI monitor directly. You must have a decoder in the middle which will decode the VBI and create open captions in the video image.

Actually a few early Blu-Ray titles have closed-captions, visible if you use the player's normal video out jack or component set to 480i. I have an Oppo UDP-203 player now with a built-in closed caption decoder that can also display them with no need to down-rez. Many recent Blu-Ray players now have caption decoders as it was mandated that analog video outputs be dropped completely.

I upscale everything via HDMI through my receiver, but still have an analog video output hooked up as well just to be able to access the closed captions.

These features are added:

Closed captions (as found on older DVDs)
