    Invalid Card... remove window?

    Is there anyway to remove the invalid card window to watch recorded shows on a dsr6000 with no subscription without the blue bar on the entire time?

    Think it out.

    You've tried the credit cards, NG. So it reads the contacts. What's available, in the hundreds of thousands. Useless, worthless, probably lying around the house, or available from someone who has one, probably for the price of a postage stamp?

    edited to add: now that you've got it, consider whether you want to state it explicitly. Makes it just a little easier for Mr. Dave to pick up and block the loophole. Maybe 1 in 1000 chance, but why take it when what's already been said is clear and may escape casual search.

    what the heck are you talking about?

    I dont want to go into the hacking aspects since its not allowed..

    but for those of us who do deal with the hu cards..

    when they go down, I'd like to be able to watch the shows i recorded without the banner for a few hours before i get my updates...

    i dont know what all the xplusz commands do.. i thought one of them might shut if off..

    I have no idea what

    SMBFS
    NFS
    NOSDD
    FIXDEMO

    do..

    I thought one of those might do it.... but probably not..

    xPlusz won't do what you want. Have you tried an H card?

    If you have a bash prompt, you can do the following. Start the playback, and remove the access card (leave it out). Shortly, a message will appear that says "Please insert your access card...". When that appears, at the bash prompt, type:

    echo | text2osd -transbg

    This will clear any nags. If you go back to the TiVo central menu, and start another playback, the message will reappear and you'll have to do it again, but it will last the duration of the playback. I haven't done this since version 2.5.0, so the message may reappear more frequently on newer versions, but it's worth a try! You could also write a looping script that recalls that command every second or so until you exit the script...

    I've tried them before, and it doesn't work. Unfortunately, it quickly comes up with some message to the effect of 'expired access card' (I forget the particulars).

    However, the trick I recommended earlier (using text2osd) does work (or at least, it did for me when I last tried it).
