There have been reports about garbled CC recordings. I'll look into that 
this weekend. I also know that ivtv-1.0.0 and up contain bugs in 
outputting CC over the card's TV-out. These are fixed in the latest 
v4l-dvb repository at www.linuxtv.org/hg (and these fixes will appear 
in 2.6.24).

If you playback a known good recording, is the CC output correct in that 
case? So it only happens with new recordings?
