Shown below is a small script that I have been using to suppress the yellow star bulleted line for the past 10 months on my DTivo running 3.1.1b. Basically, it runs in an infinite loop and every 10 minutes it examines the data base for culprit menu item data and changes the expiration time of those items to a point in the past. Note that this script requires ``grep'' to be installed on the tivo box.

#!/bin/sh

while [[ -z "" ]]; do
sleep 600;

echo 'mls /MenuItem/1' | tivosh | grep tyDb | tr -s ' ' | cut -d' ' -f4 > /tmp/killYellow.txt

for i in `cat /tmp/killYellow.txt`; do
fileId="`echo "dumpobj $i" | tivosh | grep 'MenuItem ' | tr -s ' ' | cut -d' ' -f2`";
dbset $fileId Expiration 11635;
done;
done

Where does the 'dbset' command come from?

Is that on your system ( a command ) or is it
part of tivosh?

I tried to run:
for i in `cat /tmp/killYellow.txt`; do
fileId="`echo "dumpobj $i" | tivosh | grep 'MenuItem ' | tr -s ' ' | cut -d' ' -f2`";
dbset $fileId Expiration 11635;
done;

and I got dbset not found for each entry in the kill file.

This won't do anything to release reserved disc space, it just makes the on-screen display less cluttered, correct?

Correct. I didn't bother deleting the offending files because I wasn't sure if they would simply be refetched.

Before all my posts at TCF went *poof*, I posted a tivoapp patch (applied once) that suppresses the yellow star item too.

Ah, that looks about right!

The tivoapp patch is a much better solution. Thanks.
