Anybody know how to disable them permanently?

They keep on retuning even after I disable them in setup.

Seems to be affecting TV2. Even mysky recordings of TV2 are affected.

Maybe sky have decided to have it switched on by default.

The setup menu only changes the box default until you change channel. You need to go into the setup menus and change the box default to 'off':

To turn Closed Captioning ‘On’ (or off) by default -

  • [Active]

  • 1 - System Setup

  • 4 - System Settings

  • 1 - Picture Settings

  • 4 - Caption & Banner Settings

  • Set Closed Captions to ‘On’ or 'Off' as desired

  • Save New Settings

The SKY default setting is 'off'. If someone changed it over the past few years to 'on' then you wouldn't have noticed until SKY started transmitting TVNZ's captions on the HD channels.
