  Thanks for the reply.

I had not tried to play the capture card via VLC but after reading your 
response i did.

I was able to get a channel up and it is showing me the closed captions 
and they are not bitmaps. Well i'm saying this because the captions look 
completly different then what they look like in mythtv.

Now i just have to find a way to get vlc to export the closed captions. 
Any ideas?
