Closed Caption content on roSpringboardScreen

I need to add a Closed Caption value (CC) to my springboard screen if closed captions are available for that title. This value would come after the rating. It would look like this

29m 2013 NR CC

if there were closed captions

and

29m 2013 NR

if there werent closed captions

This seems to be handled via

springBoard.setContent(assetInfo) in which springBoard is an roSpringboardScreen and assetInfo is an roAssociativeArray

Is there a list of possible values that springboard screen is set up to handle?

Possible values for display are here:
http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/ ... oardScreen

cc isn't available, so for that you'd need an roimagecanvas overlay transparency to stick on top, or create a custom roimagecanvas or roscreen for your springboard screen.
It might be easier to add a "Play with closed caption" button for the user to select if they want closed captions visible and they are available for playback for the current item.

The closed captioning badge isn't documented, but you can add it by setting the "ClosedCaptions" metadata attribute to true on your content metadata.

Cool. What other stuff isn't documented that Roku can do?

Probably quite a bit. I know about that one, because I needed it for a couple of different channels I've worked on. There's also the 5.1 badge, but I don't recall how to display that one at the moment.
