No, this will not work. A VBL contains all the 0x74 crypto-messages
that were sent out during the program you recorded the VBL from.
As a consequence you are sending the same commands to your card as
it would have received them if you were watching the program live.
I'm not sure whether non-crypto 0x74 packets are included in a
VBL (I think not, not sure) but regardless the chance of deactivation
