I have a bunch of recordings in my SA 8300HD which I plan to transfer to my PC using my Hauppauge HD-PVR 2 (via component input). Hauppauge says their device doesn't support CC, so I'll have to use something else to create a subtitle file.
- During playback of previously-recorded shows, does the 8300HD output CC?
- What should I use (on Windows) to capture CC?

To capture closed captions you need a different device, one that captures video from a composite video connection and captures Line 21 closed captioning data. I think the WinTV HVR-2250 and WinTV HVR-1800 can capture closed captions using WinTV. The WinTV software uses a proprietary closed caption stream which works for playback in WinTV, but won't help you if you play the recording in any other player. If I recall correctly, CCExtractorGUI can extract the closed captions as SRT subtitles.

CCExtractor GUI works with Hauppauge's proprietary method or with closed captions stored in the MPEG-2 user data, as is done with DVD. (Although AMD is now out of the TV tuner business, ATI used to make TV tuner devices where the encoder stored closed captions in the MPEG-2 user data. I owned two of them.)
If you need a USB device, possibly a WinTV-HVR-955Q will work, using its analog tuner, assuming your SA 8300HD can output video on analog channel 3 or 4 for older TVs. Otherwise, there is the WinTV-HVR-1955.
I also found an ATI TV Wonder 750 USB tuner on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/i/122662921182?chn=ps&dispItem=1. It has closed caption support, but I don't know what its PVR software is like.

graphstudio and ccextractor, it works perfect. Took a little doing, but I eventually got it to work - thank to the help I got here! https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/378028-Possible-to-capture-closed-captions-using-h...-devices/page2
