Closed captioning display of CC3 captions?

Our local spanish channel broadcasts with closed captioning - Spanish on CC1 and English on CC3. Is there any way I can get VideoReDo to display the CC3 closed captions when using it to view a program?

Thanks!

Click on the View menu to select the CC/Subtitle display option for the currently loaded video.

Thanks for the reply. When I select the CC display option I've always gotten the closed captions, but they're the CC1 captions in Spanish. This is regardless of whether I'm editing a file recorded by one of our TiVos or by Windows Media Center via our HDHomeRuns. When I'm viewing these same files on the TiVos, I have the option of selecting CC3, so I was hoping there was some way to do the same thing in VRD.

Press Ctrl+L to list program info and see if multiple CC/subtitles are displayed

http://www.ccextractor.org/ will extract CCs. I've never had a dual CC file to try so not sure how that would work.

But I've given up on internal "subtitles types" as they are really iffy on displaying in VLC and MPClassic.
Once they are external files they always work. ( so far)

VRD will keep CCs in some H.264 files but I've only been able to see them "in" VRD itself

Here's the file information I get from the file from the TiVos (PS-MPEG2) and from Windows Media Center (WTV). When I select to display captioning, VRD always shows the spanish CC, which is on CC1.

There's no facility in VRD to switch the caption display from CC1 to CC3. If you want to upload a sample we can check it out and see how hard it is to add.
