Issue with DirecTV Dvr Stuck on "Receiving Satellite Info" at 0%

I found an old dvr I wanted to use it as a analog converter box for my old CRT tv but I quit with the directv a long time ago and its stuck on

"Receiving Satellite Info" How would I get around this to use it like an analog to digital converter box

You can't. DirecTV DVRs are "boat anchors" without a subscription and active satellite feed.
