To make the Status Bar and Pause Ad disappear automatically during Pause and Fast-Forward or Rewind:
1. On your TiVo remote, press "Live TV"
2. Wait for the Status Bar and Channel Banner to disappear (or press Clear)
3. Press Pause
4. Press Down if a gold-star Pause Ad appears
5. Enter the code:
If the code was entered correctly, the Status Bar and gold-star Pause Ads will disappear automatically whenever you Pause or Fast-Forward or Rewind from now on, or until you re-enter the code to toggle this behavior back off, or if the TiVo reboots.
If the TiVo has recently rebooted you may need to first press Right during Live TV to show the Channel Banner and enter the code before the banner disappears in 4 seconds.
This undocumented code is very helpful when fast-forwarding through news programs with text at the bottom that would otherwise be obscured.
