If you need to toggle it a lot, there is a workaround you can try - Turn on the CC in your TV. Connect the STB & TV via component cables and HDMI. Set the aspect to widescreen SD.
With this setup you can toggle CC by toggling the input on your TV. HDMI - No CC. Component - CC.
If you cannot tolerate the aspect setting, you can leave the TV on component input and change the aspect setting in the STB. HD - No CC, SD - CC.

We're coming to the end of 2012 and there is STILL no easier way to shortcut the CC. Uverse's excuses are staggering. I need CC and my husband can't abide it, so we don't want to leave it on all the time. I have had Uverse for several years and have waited for relief. I've had multiple other cable systems and NEVER experienced this headache!!

I tried it the other day & it does toggle CC on HD.

Thanks for the alternatives, aviewer. At least there is SOMETHING intuitive out there.
However, AT&T has been extremely insensitive to the hearing impaired community by not making his option more accessible on with their equipment. My Samsung tv remote has a dedicated CC button, as do many other manufacturer's remotes.
It takes me TWENTY button presses on the S10-S2 remote to change this setting. TWENTY!!
for those of us who need to do this on a regular basis, it's simply unacceptable.
what it says to me is that AT&T doesn't care enough about the hearing impaired community to make this necessary task easy enough to use.
AT&T: prove me wrong. Stop offering excuses and start being more proactive with accessibility.

Not defending att. The CC saga is a dishoner to A G Bell & many who came after. I just like to find ways to "get er done". Look up some of my old posts on making CC one click by using analog SD.
Keep that ipad handy. It ain't over til you see. "the fat lady sings" on your screen.
