Closed caption for PIP

Add an CC extra decoder to TV sets for the PIP Feature
  [vote for,

Should be easily baked, Add an extra closed caption decoder to tv sets for the PIP, that way, you can really watch two different shows at the same time, or two people can watch tv together. Have the closed caption appear where the regular closed caption would appear

       Whats PIP? Picture in picture?

       PIP = picture in picture, very useful picture if I could only get to see or hear what's being said

       Waht would happen when the main picture was showing something captioned, e.g. someone speaking in a foreign language that is subtitled? Apart from that I'd use this (+).

       Sony has a model that comes with a set of wireless headphones. You can put it in a mode where the sound for one picture comes through the speakers, and the sound for the PIP comes through the headphones. This solves the same problem without forcing you to read captions. (It also helps that this is a 36" set and you can make the PIP and the main picture equal sizes). See link.

       What if you had some sort of diffraction grating over the screen, so that if two viewers sat at the proper angle with respect to the set, they could watch two separate, but simultaneously broadcast and overlaid signals (with captions, not sound)?

       This makes me think of my parents' living room, where my deaf mother watches closed captioned shows on one television and my dad watches programs with sound on another.   

       But anyway, the problem is solved by having two televisions.
