I can't get rid of closed captioning! I have a Pioneer Elite 50" flat screen, Comcast digital cable and use an infrared universal remote. This evening, for no apparent reason, the closed caption is on??? I've tried all the functions I can access via the three remotes (Pioneer, Comcast and universal) unsuccessfully. I'm sure this is an easy solutions; so please make me feel like an idiot and help me!

Closed captioning can come trough 4 sources 3 of them access a digital file and display it to the screen. ALL must be set to off on each device:
Embeded in actual program video source--unlikely your problem.
TV decoder cotrolled by TV menu under "language"
Cable box--ditto for menu selection
DVD player or VHS tuner--Ditto for menu
