You can hide the upper part by switching to half-osd mode. This is also 
required for the subtitles 'box mode' to be active, displaying most of 
the screen fully transparent. Only 4mb-modded card users will be a 
little bit lost here, as there is no real half-osd mode.

Hiding the top line isn't difficult, most of it is already hidden by the 
(Flags&0x10) flag. The important part is to let it re-appear as soon as 
you want to type a new page number, and hide again after some time of 
inactivity. The interface could use a solid concept for dynamic page 
updates, this also blocks the 'blinking text' feature.

The major drawback however is that this only works for live TV, not 
recorded TV, the teletext stream is not part of the recording.
