How to remove the flashing "missing tape" icon?

I am trying to use the DV (i-link) output from either my TRV 720 or TRV 900 and record directly to a DVD recorder with DV input.  By removing the tape I can avoid the auto shut off that powers down the camera but I get the flashing "Tape Missing" icon in the center of the field of view.  Anyone know how to shut this off so that I can feed the signal directly to the DVD recorder.  I can find a menu option that will shut off most display icons but not the missing tape.
Thanks in advance,

I've never figured out how to turn it off, but it doesn't effect the signal going to the recorder.

I have recorded numerous hours directly to an external Hard drive without a tape in the camera. The flashing yellow icon, does NOT get recorded.

Hope that helps.

8w8/Toogy- Welcome to Agoraquest. I admit that I don't have a camera like this. But, it would be my guess that is a safety feature, to help avoid you trying to record with no tape in the camera-and it can't be turned off.
