I haven't tried your actual files, but there are two likely issues here:

1.  Your ffmpeg build needs to be compiled to make use of the
libklvanc library.  That is necessary to produce the SDI VANC data
that makes up the CEA-708 captions.


2.  You must use the v210 codec.  If you use "-pix_fmt uyvy422" that
puts the decklink output into 8-bit mode, which won't work with 10-bit
VANC (as required for CEA-708).
