Any local terminal text (login prompt, etc) is showing through areas of the screen that are not covered by video (i.e. the black bars on the top and bottom) when I use a remote terminal to play video with omxplayer. If I wait 10-15 minutes, the local terminal goes totally black due to inactivity which fixes the problem, but that's kind of a lame workaround.
I'm thinking that using omxplayer locally would sidestep the problem, but I cant verify since my RPi hates all of my keyboards. I also dont want to play video that way long-term.
How can I black out the local terminal so it doesn't show through when using a remote terminal to play videos over HDMI?
