My tests of this were with an octo-core Apple mac, Grass 100 swircher, the original model IO with SDI and firewire into the Apple's motherboard, and a beta SP deck. By using a capture setting of Uncompressed Composite, I was able to capture the original program with the line 21 cc signal, make simple cuts, play the timeline back out composite to the betacam deck, and that tape, checked on another deck hooked to a CC decoder, showed that the CC was preserved and readable.

What I end up doing mostly is, making a DVD using a stand-alone real-time DVD recorder, containing the same program with the CC turned off, and one with the CC turned on during the capture. Users can thus pick an open-captioned version or non-captioned version thru the DVD menu.

There's a CC forum on the COW that can give you better advice than this, check them out directly.
