Hello, When you're using a DirecTv box- the Closed Captioning function must be accessed within the box itself. Here is direct from DirecTv's site on how to access the CC function:

  1. While watching a live TV program, press the YELLOW button on your remote.
  2. You'll see an option for DIRECTV Subtitling.
  3. Use the arrow button to highlight it, then press Select.
  4. DIRECTV Subtitles will appear over the video.
