RAF Ad Counter Display?

When there is just a single preroll ad for a video, how do you disable the "Ad 1 of 1" text in the top left corner with Roku Ad Framework in scenegraph?

Yup, that is the official endorsed solution.  You can't.  Otherwise just don't use RAF.  Much like if Roku doesn't allow you to do what you need to get done, just don't use Roku.  Makes perfect sense, and your support here is going way above and beyond what anyone had ever expected.

Distinguishing advertisements from content is paramount. 

Consistent experience across apps is important, including improvements to ad badge over time. 

Keeping this in mind, what do you imagine seeing when playing an ad break consisting of a single ad?

1 of 1 is implied if there isn't an ad counter.  It is stupid if you think about it, but nobody thinks about advertising.

I can see how it would be implied, but people might appreciate knowing for sure, instead of wondering if there will be another ad after this one.
