The title say it all.

Is there any software for linux (preferably ubuntu) that let me save the close captions on some tv shows to a file?

I just need to extract the closed captions isn't necessary any video optput.

i don't know if this required hardware support that is why i'm asking support for generic tv cards.

Have a look at CCExtractor. You need to compile it from source though.
It takes MPEG files as input, so you'll need to save the input stream somewhere and try it out.

this means capturing the stream first, so he'll need to install capture software. mythbuntu's hardware compatibility list is a good place to start getting the tv card up and running: mythtv.org/wiki/Tuner_Card#Cards_that_work –  quack quixote Oct 14 '09 at 0:10
