#9569 closed Patch - Bug Fix (Fixed)

CEA-708 captions do not update frequently enough

Reported by: Clayton Smith <argilo@…> Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - ATSC Version: 0.24-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: cea-708
Cc: Ticket locked: no


CEA-708 closed captions in MythTV usually display only one line at a time, rather than one character at a time as my televisions' caption decoders do. As a result, the viewer must wait longer before seeing the caption text, and ofter the bottom line of scrolling captions remains unused because the updates seem to occur just after a carriage return has cleared the bottom line.

The attached patch corrects this problem by triggering an update after each new packet, rather than waiting until a control sequence arrives.
