My Samsung 52 inch 1080 LCD TV , I cannot get the Closed Caption to work. The manual says that it will not work on Component, HDMI or PC modes.   How can I hook it up so the closed caption works. I have Dish network.

Thank you for using Just Answer.

Hookup the TV with the best hookup that you can (HDMI if you have it).

The closed caption comes from the DIRECT TV receiver and NOT the TV when you use Direct TV.

There is a menu in the Direct TV receiver that would turn on the closed caption. If you are unable to find it in their book, you can contact Direct TV's customer support and a technician can walk you thru it.

Please let me know if you would like more information and/or clarification.
