I am still partial to Tablo (well. after SageTV) but that may be mainly because there is no Channels DVR ROKU App and the Tablo App in Shield is … eh, clumsy. Nevertheless, the only thing that I...

You are, indeed, correct. Closed Captioning works as expected on Android devices (at least, Shield and Fire TV Cube). The problem is with ROKU which is my main streaming device. I rarely use Shield...

Emby doesn't do Streaming, only OTA.
