I have been trying to find the Iso disk by flipflop to enable me to upload D10 IR codes to my replaytv. I have not been able to download as the link is dead. If someone could post that would be appreciated.

People looking for RidGen which is used to create RID files might want to note that it has moved to a slightly different location here: http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dl...ory&cat_id=106 (as of early 2010).

Details for using it are provided earlier on this thread.

I'm having trouble adding a code to my 4k for the Comcast RNG200 or is that RNG-200? more details in this other post

I have a working JP1 upgrade for my remotes, but the protocol and device upgrade uses different subdevice codes for each digit. (obc efc stays the same). Bizarre.

I just went through the process of adding the IR Blaster codes for the new Comcast Thomson DCI1011 DTA boxes. Here is an updated readme.txt file that is in the root directory of the Linux CD image. Hopefully, it will help others avoid some problems I encountered.

* * * * *

============================================================ ====================
Original readme.txt. See update below
============================================================ ====================
This bootable CD image is from


To install a RID file on the ReplayTV, use the following procedure.

1) Boot your computer using this CD image
- after booting it should automatically detect your ReplayTV(s)
and automatically copy the necessary files to the Photo partition
2) On your ReplayTV, switch the network configuration to manual, and set both
DNS server settings on your ReplayTV to match the IP address reported on
your computer after booting it with this CD
(be sure to note what your previous settings were, so you can restore them)
4) On your ReplayTV, select Menu..Setup..Connect to ReplayTV Service Now to
force it to connect through your PC.

If all goes well, you should get a clock and a CPU meter pop up on the screen
during the net connect. These are done at the beginning and end of the script
just so you can see that the script began and completed. If you get ONLY the
clock, then the script did not complete, and the codes were not properly
installed!

Press Exit-Exit then 2-4-3-Zones to access the debug menus and toggle the
clock and CPU meter back off.

Now you should be able to set your device up with one of the following codes

2000 all pansats
2001 all viewsats V1
2002 all viewsats V2
2003 all dreambox
2004 all coolsats
2005 Accurian
2006 3500S
2007 DirecTV D10
2008 LG LST-3xxx
2009 PanSat2500
2010 Sylvania SRZ3000
2011 USDTV Receiver
2012 Viewsat

Once things are working, restore the ReplayTV network configuration to your
previous settings. You can also safely remove the "install" photo directory
from your ReplayTV(s). This folder was automatically created during the
install process.

============================================================ ====================
Update 03/04/2010 -- Lynn Clark
============================================================ ====================

You can create your own custom boot image. First, mount the FlipFlop iso image
and then copy it's entire contents to a directory on your local hard drive.
Then add/update/modify ircodes, ircodesRaw, *.rid files and the shellcmds
script that you will find in the RID-Install directory.

Modify the shellcmds script as appropriate to handle backing-up and copying the
files you need to update on the target ReplayTV device.

Important points:

- Paths in the shellcmds script are very important!

- The source path of the new ircodes, ircodesRaw and *.rid files must be
/name/storage/Photo/install. This is because the CD that they will
end up on will copy them to that directory on the ReplayTV(s) it finds
when you boot the PC with the CD.

- The destination path of the new ircodes, ircodesRaw and *.rid files
must be:

- ircodes* files:

/name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata

- *.rid files:

/name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset

Here are some example shellcmds files:

This one backs up all three files. If you end up running this again, you
should change "Backup01" to "Backup02" (and to "Backup03" if you run it
again, ...).

AppShell ToggleClock
mkdir -p /name/storage/Photo/Backup01
AppShell ToggleMemMeter
cp -f /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodes /name/storage/Photo/Backup01/ircodes
cp -f /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodesRaw /name/storage/Photo/Backup01/ircodesRaw
cp -f /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset/C0237fi.rid /name/storage/Photo/Backup01/C0237fi.rid
AppShell ToggleNetworkMeter
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/ircodes /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodes
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/ircodesRaw /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodesRaw
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/C0237fi.rid /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset/C0237fi.rid
AppShell ToggleCpuMeter

This one backs up just the ircode* files.

AppShell ToggleClock
mkdir -p /name/storage/Photo/Backup01
AppShell ToggleMemMeter
cp -f /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodes /name/storage/Photo/Backup01/ircodes
cp -f /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodesRaw /name/storage/Photo/Backup01/ircodesRaw
AppShell ToggleNetworkMeter
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/ircodes /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodes
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/ircodesRaw /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodesRaw
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/C0237fi.rid /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset/C0237fi.rid
AppShell ToggleCpuMeter

This one copies just the .rid file without making a backup first. This
works if the 0237 RID codes are already in the ircodes* files on your
ReplayTV.

AppShell ToggleClock
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/C0237fi.rid /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset/C0237fi.rid
AppShell ToggleCpuMeter


- It seems that you must update the ircodes and ircodesRaw files at least once.
It seems like the ReplayTV software does some kind of sanity check to make
sure that any new *.rid file you copy to the ReplayTV is listed in the
ircodes* file(s).

- If you use the first several lines in the included shellcmds.* files to make
backup copies of the current files on your ReplayTV(s), make sure the files
already exist on the ReplayTV. If you try to copy a file that doesn't exist,
the shellcmds script will error out and you will have to modify the shellcmds
script, burn a new CD and repeat the process.

- You can use any of five "AppShell Toggle*" commands in the shellcmds script to
act as "debug print" statements to give you an idea of how far the shellcmds
script gets to when it runs on the target ReplayTV when it does a network
connection. Those five commands are:

AppShell ToggleClock
AppShell ToggleCpuMeter
AppShell ToggleMemMeter
AppShell ToggleNetworkMeter
AppShell TogglePositionMeter

When those commands run, they turn on the specified meter display on the
ReplayTV screen. If the shellcmds script aborts before it gets to one of
those commands, it won't display. Once you have determined which of those
commands executed, and which ones didn't, you need to go to live TV on the
ReplayTV and press "2-4-3-zones" on the ReplayTV remote. That will display a
debug screen where you can turn the displayed meters off. On my 5000-series
ReplayTV (software version 530511440), I have to press "Select/OK" on the
remote three times to get it to toggle the display.

- All of the files and directories in this directory (where this readme.txt file
is) need to be at the root-directory of the boot CD. So, for example, if you
use xcdroast on Linux to burn the CD, you need to make sure that you select
the "Master Tracks" option to remove the full path to this directory when you
select files and directoryes to put on the disk image (the actual path will
depend on where you've put this directory on your machine).

- To make the CD bootable in xcdroast, you must specify the following on the
"Master Tracks->Boot options" tab:

- Make CD bootable? Select "El Torito (Standard PC)"
- Boot image: /boot/isolinux/isolinux.bin
- Select "No disk emulation boot"
- Check "No emul load size" and set it to 4
- Check "Modify boot info-table"

If you use other CD-burning software, you should be able to set similar
options.

- When you boot the PC with the CD you burn based on these instructions, it will
do several things, more or less in this order:

- Search for any ReplayTV devices on your network.

- Copy the entire contents of the RID-Install directory to the
/name/storage/Photo/Install directory on the ReplayTV devices that it
finds.

At the PC command prompt you can find those files in the
/mnt/cdrom/RID-Install directory. Also in the PC directory structure
you will find the /var/www/rns/scripts/shellcmds file. That file has
a single line that points to the /mnt/cdrom/RID-Install/shellcmds
script.

If at any point you reset a ReplayTV to the factory defaults
("3-8-2-zones" on the ReplayTV remote while it's on live TV), you need
to reboot the PC so that it can re-copy the files. When you reset to
factory defaults, the /name/storage/Photo directory on the ReplayTV is
wiped clean.

- Instruct you to change the network settings on your ReplayTV(s) to
point the DNS1 and DNS2 settings at the IP address of the PC. The
easiest way to do that (assuming your ReplayTV(s) are using DHCP to
get their network settings) is to change the settings from "automatic"
to "manual", then just modify the two DNS* settings.

You can write down the original values for reference later when you
restore the settings after you've successfully installed/upgraded the
ircodes* and *.rid files on the target ReplayTV(s), but I found that
simply switching the ReplayTV network settings back to "automatic"
does the trick (this assumes you're using DHCP to let the ReplayTV(s)
get their network settings automatically).

- Instruct you to force a network connection on the ReplayTV(s).
Because you pointed the DNS* settings on your ReplayTV(s) at the PC,
the ReplayTV(s) will connect to the PC instead of to the remote
ReplayTV server. The last step of the network connection process runs
the /var/www/rns/scripts/shellcmds script, which copies the files
from the /name/Storage/Photo/install directory to the
/name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/* directories on the
ReplayTV box.

- You can use httpfs (part of the replaypc package) to check the /name/storage
directoy contents from any Mac or PC that you can run httpfs on. Binaries are
available for Linux, Windows and Mac (PPC only). Source code is available for
the replaypc package if you're so inclined to build it from scratch. Run
httpfs without any command-line arguments for a brief usage screen. httpfs
is already on the CD image. A Google search will help you find the replaypc
package if you don't have it on the PC or Mac that you're working on.

- Note that the httpfs cp, create, fstat, ls, mv, mkdir, rm and volinfo
commands only work on files on the target ReplayTV machine. IOW, you
can't use the httpfs cp command to copy a file to or from a ReplayTV
and your local PC or Mac. For that you need to use the httpfs
readfile and writefile commands, paying close attention to the
command-line arguments.

- Handy httpfs commands are:

- Display the /name/storage directory:

httpfs -a ls -l

- Display the /name/storage/Photo directory:

httpfs -a ls -l Photo

- Display the /name/storage/Photo/install directory:

httpfs -a ls -l Photo/install

- Copy a file from a ReplayTV to your local hard drive:

httpfs -a readfile -f

where is the path and file name on your
local drive and is the full path to the
file on the ReplayTV.

- Copy a file from your local hard drive to a ReplayTV:

httpfs -a writefile -f

where is the path and file name on your
local drive and is the full path to the
file on the ReplayTV.

If you get an error when you run any of the above commands, it is
probably an indication that something went wrong when the shellcmds
script ran when the ReplayTV did a network connection.

If the RTV4K_ADDRESS environment variable points to the ReplayTV IP
address, you don't need the "-a " option on the
httpfs command lines.

Uploading my previous message screwed up the formatting in my updated readme.txt file. I'm attaching/uploading it now to see if that will preserve the formatting.

I'm hoping someone here can help me out. I have a Digital Stream DTX9950 digital to analog converter box. I'm currently using built-in code 7470 (s7470.rid) to

successfully control the box. The problem is that I want to be able to tune sub-channels so I'm trying to build my own RID to replace the code for '0' to the code for '.'

I've learned all the codes into the Pronto and confirmed they work correctly. Both RIDGen and HEX2RID will not work with these HEX codes. HEX2RID complains

that they are not learned Pronto codes. Here are the codes from the Pronto:
0 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 10EF
1 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 11EE
2 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 12ED
3 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 13EC
4 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 14EB
5 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 15EA
6 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 16E9
7 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 17E8
8 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 18E7
9 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 19E6
OK 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 01FE
Power 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 00FF
. 900A 006D 0000 0001 1234 1AE5

Note that the last four digits match the IR codes published in the manual and the second to last for digits (1234) match the vendor ID published in the manual.

Please help! I'm officially out of my league at this point. I've already got WiRNS up and running and have my lineup remapped using the "0" in place of "." so this is the

last step.

Thanks!

BTW, here is the output from HEX2RID:

I don't believe the RTV will pass buttonID 0xc9 ('discrete power on') in-sequence with a numeric channel change entry (as depicted in your previous post). I have never tested power codes with the RTV, but I rather doubt they get passed through. This means you will need to substitute a number button for your DTX-9950's DOT (decimal point) button.

Were you really able to remove ALL the zeros from your lineup? You will never need to key in channels like: x0.y, x0y.0z, xy0.z0, etc? Are you really going to keep WiRNS running 24/7 to keep your RTV happy? Are 4 digits really enough to completely describe your new channel map with 0 acting as a DOT (decimal point)? Well, I guess that should leave about 9^4 channels to map.

Your 'learned' codes are actually in a special short format and do not begin with '0000' (raw oscillated code). I don't know if there is a way to coax your Pronto remote or its software into working in raw mode. More excruciating details can be found here:
http://www.hifi-remote.com/infrared/prontoirformats.pdf
http://www.remotecentral.com/tsu3000/pngfaq-b5.htm
http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3258

First word in IR code - wFmtID - identifies IR format, so that its value explains how to use all other words in code. Currently
the following formats are used:
0000 - raw oscillated code
0100 - raw unmodulated code
5000 - RC5
5001 - RC5x
6000 - RC6 Mode 0
7000 - predefined code of variable length
8000 - index to UDB
9000, 900A, 900B, 900C, 900D, 900E - NEC
9001 - basic mode YAMAHA NEC code

The first 2 pages of another thread yielded more useful information:
Quote:
Vendor 0x1234 = Device 18.52
1'st byte is the device number.
2'nd byte is one of two different things, depending on how that manufacturer uses NEC protocol. It may be a subdevice number or it may be a check byte on the device number. If the 1'st and second bytes add up to FF then the second was a check byte and there is no subdevice.
3'rd byte is the function number.
4'th byte is a check byte. 3'rd byte plus 4'th byte add up to FF.

I initially dumped S7470fi.rid with both HEX2RID and irCodeSet and found that its device/vendor code (NEC1):12.251 does not truly match your DTX-9950's declared vendor ID. Others report that C0899 also works, but its device code (NEC1):33.156 also does not match. I'm not really a remote protocol expert so I am uncertain exactly how close those magic numbers actually need to be.

I think the easiest path at this point would be to build your codes from scratch rather than trying to convert those short format pronto codes or discover some way of correlating the RID dumped hex codes with the actual function values of your DTX-9950's remote buttons.
  1. Get MakeHex and extract it.
  2. Copy nec1.irp to DTX9950.irp and change the 'vendor code' on line 1 to read: "Device=18.52"
    Code:
    Device=18.52
    Function=0..255
    
    Protocol=NEC
    Frequency=38000
    Time Base=564
    One=1,-3
    Zero=1,-1
    Prefix=16,-8
    Suffix=1,-78
    R-Prefix=16,-4
    R-Suffix=1,-174
    Default S=~D
    Form=*,D:8,S:8,F:8,~F:8,_;*,_
    
  3. Run: makehex -B DTX9950.irp
    (The -B is to output both HEX and DECIMAL function values. Use -H to have the function values output in HEX only.)

  4. Lookup your functions (I used the values found in this image) and map the relevant hex-strings onto the RTV button-code IDs. In your case take the first 2 digits of a HEX function number (only the first 2 digits, ignore its checksum/complement) and find that HEX function value in your makehex output (DTX9950.hex)

    For example the DTX-9950's remote buttons 1-10 (HEX functions 10-19) should be listed in your makehex output as HEX functions 10-19 (or decimal 16-25 if you forgot to use the -H or -B option with makehex). Map those long hex-strings onto RTV button-code IDs 1-10 (with the exception of your DOT button replacing button 0).


I believe this should be the hex-string for your DTX-9950's DOT button (to replace RTV button ID 0).

I've just hooked up one of them cheap Centronics / Digiwave clearQAM tuners to my 5040 and it works great!
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1136626
But of course the RTV can't tune it so I was wondering if anybody has a RID file for that? Unfortunately the forums over at hifi-remote are down . My Harmony remote works fine with it. The RTV code 0244 does turn it on and off but won't change the channel .

This tuner seems compatible with the channel guide as it doesn't need the "dot" part of the channel number entered to get to the dot one channels which correspond to the channel guide channels. That is, on this tuner I can just punch in "5" "6" "select" to get the channel 56 listed in the guide (actual channel on the tuner is 56.1). All the channels I'm interested in recording work that way so I shouldn't need a custom channel guide .

Yes, you are correct. The Replay could not tune the SAT-HDx00's sub-channels.

In my particular case, I got around this limitation by using D*'s East and West Coast HD feeds. At the time, I was able to get both the East Coast and West Coast HD feeds. So, I merely used the Replay's Guide to tune to channels 80-89.

If I wanted to record a OTA HD channel, I'd set the SAT-HDx00 and/or D* H20 to autotune the specific sub-channel (i.e. 5-1) and then set the Replay to record the "main" channel (5) one minute ahead. That way, I'd get the Replay's Guide information.

Hope this clarifies things.

I have been cruising this and other sites to see if anyone ever figured out a way to put a dash in the Replay 5**** series command so they could run a Sony HD100. Couldn't the enter button be changed to a dash? Has anybody tried this?

I am trying to get my old Replay to operate an HD100 in the bedroom. I can set up the HD100 to go to a particular station at a particular time and then set up the Replay to go to that source and start recording. This is better than nothing, but I will have to get a UPS as the Sony HD100 loses it's clock if power goes off. It is also rather convoluted.

Any help appreciated. Lew

While I'm no expert on IR blasting, I think this in particular couldn't work because the only way to get the RTV to send an "enter" is to set the advanced setting to send enter, and then the RTV would add an "enter" to the end of the tuning command. So, the best you could do this way is to get a dash on the end, which wouldn't help for tuning subchannels. You can see the logic that the enter button is the end of a tuning sequence (even if you are manually tuning a channel, you press "enter" when you are done), so how would you ever get the subchannel after the enter?

Beats me. I have just read enough to be dangerous. I thought maybe code sent when you hit enter could be changed through software. Too bad there isn't a workaround. In searching threads it was cool to see that I could get the program guide for my local OTA stations via HD100 through input 1. It would be great to ba able to hit select and have the Replay change the station on the HD100. I guess I will have to find a small UPS, though my experience is that the batteries fail pretty quickly.

Thanks for the response. Lew

PS The HD100 works with the serial port, but I guess the problem is the same.

I guess I would try out the HD100 remote and see if there's any way around the dash requirement. Like, if you enter "00121" on the remote, for example, and assuming that it's four digit channels, does it tune to channel 12-1? If you can find some way to tune to subchannels without using the dash on the remote (I don't know if the remote has an enter key, but maybe something like 121 "enter" tunes to 12-1), then you should be able to program the RTV to do the same thing. You just have to figure out what you can do with your remote to make it work, and then you can program the RTV the same way (which would require something like WiRNS to change your channel numbering)...

Thanks Henry, I will play with that. I have read a bit about WiRNS, but don't fully understand it and how to implement it. I will play with the HD100 remote and see what happens. Lew

Can any help with my shellcmds error - I am banging my head against my computer and replaytv trying to get my replays to take the new ir codes.

Firstly, I have been using WiRNS and DVArchive for quite some time and have DVArchive 3.1 and WiRNS 2.0
I have 3 replay units (2x4504 & 1x4160) all three have new 320gig HD.

I just replaced my HD on the unit which I am trying to upload the RID file to.



1) Using DVA created the "install' directory under 'Photos'
2) Copied these files to above directory.
"ircodes"
"ircodesRaw"
"shellcmds" <- should this be copied on the ReplayTv as well?
"S1007fi.rid"
"S1009fi.rid"
"S1010fi.rid"
"S1011fi.rid"
"S1012fi.rid"
"S1014fi.rid"
"C2000fi.rid"
3) Inserted these lines into 'shellcmds' in my 'C:\\WIRNS' directory.
AppShell ToggleClock
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/ircodes /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodes
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/ircodesRaw /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodesRaw
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/S1007fi.rid /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset/S1007fi.rid
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/S1009fi.rid /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset/S1009fi.rid
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/S1010fi.rid /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset/S1010fi.rid
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/S1011fi.rid /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset/S1011fi.rid
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/S1012fi.rid /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset/S1012fi.rid
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/S1014fi.rid /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset/S1014fi.rid
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/C2000fi.rid /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset/C2000fi.rid
AppShell ToggleCpuMeter
4) Performed a 'Connect To Replay TV Service' from my Replay TV unit
5) I get the Clock, but NO CPU Meter

6) I've tested the shellcmds with only the:
AppShell ToggleClock
AppShell ToggleCpuMeter

And I get BOTH the Clock and CPU Meter.

7) To narrow down the problem, I modified the the shellcmds to:
AppShell ToggleClock
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/ircodes /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodes
cp -f /name/storage/Photo/install/ircodesRaw /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata/ircodesRaw
AppShell ToggleCpuMeter

And I only get the clock, so some how I can't get the scipt to load the files

Any advice?

I've attached the files I've been working with.... HELP!!!

Is it WIRNS or my script?

Does anyone know if FlipFlop's bootable CD solution work for the Comcast DTA DCI105COM1?

I believe I successfully installed the codes following FlipFlop's instructions. However, I'm not sure how/which IR code to choose for my DTA?

There is a post that addresses the thomson DCI1011COM. I'm not sure if will work with my DCI105COM1. Plus, it requires you to removing the replaytv hard drive and connecting it to you PC which is not possible for me.

Update:
I have the 5K RTV.

I would start out by pointing you at this post of someone modifying FlipFlop's bootable CD solution to get the newer Comcast IR codes on it...

By the way, those instructions that you refer to are for installing the codes in a Showstopper, not a modern 4K or 5K RTV. Since you didn't mention which model RTV you are trying to add IR codes to, it isn't clear that would be the way you'd want to go. For a pre-4K unit, the only way to use the CD or any other external method is to add a phone line simulator and phone line router to even be able to externally change the IR codes without opening the unit. For a 4K or 5K unit, it is quite easy to change the IR codes without opening the unit, and I will refer you to this post that I wrote yesterday detailing all the differnet posts with instructions for changing the IR codes externally...

milesprower's post finally did the trick. The link is in the previous post (I can't add links yet).

The only difference I noticed is when I selected PACE, code 2009 was not immediately visible. I had to go under OTHER and then select 2009.

Also if it's not obvious he uses two pc's (One, to keep FlipFlop's ISO cd running. The other to run DVArchive for deleting/adding the appropriate files). If you don't do this you either have to rebuild the ISO or figure out another way.

I tried using WiRNS without any luck (my RTV would never connect).

Anyway works now. Thanks for pointing me in a right direction.

This tuner seems compatible with the channel guide as it doesn't need the "dot" part of the channel number entered to get to the dot one channels which correspond to the channel guide channels. That is, on this tuner I can just punch in "5" "6" "select" to get the channel 56 listed in the guide (actual channel on the tuner is 56.1). All the channels I'm interested in recording work that way so I shouldn't need a custom channel guide .

I've got the same issue. Does any one know if there is a RID file out there that will work with a Centronics ZAT502?

Thanks...

Ditto, but adding that the freebie VMware Player works darn well, too, for booting FlipFlop's CD -- especially if you're playing around with multiple codes and don't want to create a stack of coasters.

See here for tips on leveraging VMware Player for testing ISO boot images.

The only hitch was needing to set the network interfaces in the VM to "bridge" via the host interfaces, rather than use NAT. (Hiding behind NAT, absent any additional routing modifications, prevents communications with the Replays. Using bridging puts the VM onto the same LAN as the Replays, and things go smoothly.)

To verify you are actually doing this, try an ordinary remote control first to see if you can see it transmitting when you press a button.

I've been using this technique to debug my ReplayTV unit and can say "it isn't sending out a thing!!".

Just relating my experience with this method of testing... Via my digital camera's LCD screen (on an old Kodak DC290), I can see the IR flashes coming from all my remotes, as grayish flashes on the LCD; however, even though my ReplayTV is successfully communicating with my DTA via IR blaster, I'm NOT able to see the IR flashes from the IR blaster via the camera's LCD. This is true for both my Replays w/ IR blasters, one talking to a Motorola digital set-top box and the other a Pace DC50Xu.

'gist: This camera test is not fool proof, and inability to see the IR flashes coming from the ReplayTV IR blaster via the camera does NOT necessarily indicate a bad blaster or that IR signals aren't being sent.

To be clear, the linked post (authored by milesprower), doesn't modify FlipFlop's bootable CD. Rather, he cleverly uses FlipFlop's boot CD as-is, but then, immediately after the CD transfers its files to the Replay, he uses DVArchive to replace the CD-transferred files on the ReplayTV w/ just those needed for his specific IR mod -- and then resumes FlipFlop's process in order to initiate the NetConnect (which executes the modified 'shellcmds' file).

This is a great process for someone with an existing DVArchive instance and not wanting to load anything more than the necessary IR modifications for a given set-top box.

If milesprower's solution is what you want to attempt but have only one PC at your disposal, as mentioned just above, booting the ISO within VMware Player is one way of making it happen.

The LINK from 12/07/05 is still valid. (Where is the 'broken' LINK?)

What's broken is how Sourceforge is interpreting the links. The link to the ISO CD provided in FlipFlop's post, as well as on the replaytvupgrade page, results in the following "not found" error from Sourceforge...
The "/RTVPatch" file could not be found or is not available. Please select another file. ... and you're dropped at the root of the 'ReplayTV Upgrade Patch' files listing. One needs to know to look under RTVPatch / linux-cd-image to find the 2.5.5d CD image download link.

p.s. FYI... The direct link for the 2.5.5d CD image download doesn't get misinterpreted by Sourceforge (as of 13Sep2010).

Well it has been quite some time since I last posted (just goes to say how good my ReplayTV has been acting up until now). The reason I came to this thread was to see if the 2 very cheap CECB devices I got (only cost me shipping with the coupons) could be made to work. The one I choose (before checking in with the fine folks on this board) was the Philco TB100HH9. This one seemed to do everything I wanted it to do (including the RF pass-through) and was given some good reviews elsewhere.

Since their arrival they have simply been sitting in their boxes with only one even seeing any use (we went camping and they did not have cable). Then Comcast here in GA started moving all but the very basic of channels (cannot complain too much as basic cable is all I'm paying them for mind you) to digital only which is causing me to rethink my setup. If AT&T U-Verse ever comes knocking, I'm there, but I know that with it you only get 4 concurrent TV choices and as I quite often record 2 to 3 shows at a time, that could be a problem for the 2 teenage kids in the house.

My plan is to use the 2 CECB units with my 2 ReplayTV boxes (the overflow is a Windows 7 computer with it's own ATSC tuner) since most of my recording is on the local network channels. That way if (or should I say when) U-Verse is available the 4 threads will all be free. Trouble is I've found no one who has reported my box as being usable with ReplayTV. So I read a little here and there, checked in with the folks from JP1, dusted off my old copy of WIRNS and get ready to roll up my sleeves. That is when Flipflops' bootable CD popped up in my Google search.

I actually started making my own RID file (did actually make it but it did not work) by using the one I found for a Magnavox TB100MW9 (simply cause the model number looked to close to mine not to have simply been a re-do from Funai with a different label on it). While my RID file did not work I (quite by accident) discovered that one Flipflop included in his CD DID work. The one designed for a Sylvania SRZ3000 (code 2010) named C2010fi.rid worked right out of the box. So if you are like me (cheap I guess) and find yourself trying to make your Philco converter work with ReplayTV, then I hope Google lands you on this posting.

Simply one man's opinion!

Well, Comcast has struck me with the mandatory Pace DC50X conversion, and I have been trying to follow this thread to add the required IR blaster code to my two lifetime and one paid 55xx and 50xx units.

I have kept these units going over the years with the bountiful help from members of this forum, but I admit trying to follow THIS thread is taxing my ability......

I found this site.... http://blog.katharsys.com/?p=733

with step by step instructions for adding the blaster code.

Is this a valid, workable solution????? Anything that needs to be added?

Thanks, in advance, for advice on this and also for all the past support!

To install a RID file on the ReplayTV, use the following procedure.

1) Create a bootable CD using the image from
http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ckage_id=13712

2) Boot your computer using this CD image
- after booting it should automatically detect your ReplayTV(s)
and automatically copy the necessary files to the Photo partition

3) On your ReplayTV, switch the network configuration to static, and set both
DNS server settings on your ReplayTV to match the IP address reported on
your computer (be sure to note what your previous settings were)
4) On your ReplayTV, select Menu..Setup..Connect to ReplayTV Service Now to
force it to connect through your PC.

If all goes well, you should get a clock and a CPU meter pop up on the screen
during the net connect. These are done at the beginning and end of the script
just so you can see that the script began and completed.
Use 2-4-3-Zones to access the debug menus and toggle these back off.

Now you should be able to set your device up with one of the following codes

2000 all pansats
2001 all viewsats V1
2002 all viewsats V2
2003 all dreambox
2004 all coolsats
2005 Accurian
2006 3500S
2007 DirecTV D10
2008 LG LST-3xxx
2009 PanSat2500
2010 Sylvania SRZ3000
2011 USDTV Receiver
2012 Viewsat


Once things are working, restore the ReplayTV network configuration to your
previous settings. You can also safely remove the "install" photo directory
from your ReplayTV(s). This folder was automatically created during the
install process.

SCRIPT RUNS BUT DOES NOT COMPLETE

I want to add my success story in order to help others who might experience the same problem I had. But first I would like to extend a hearty THANK YOU to FlipFlop, Henry, and many other smart, kind, helpful people who put in time to assist people with their ReplayTV issues.

First, the BACKGROUND (skip ahead to my SOLUTION if you like):

Last October, I dumped Comcast in favor of DirecTV. I used FlipFlop's linux-cd-image-2.5.5d.iso (inside VirtualBox on my Mac) to update my two ReplayTVs to work with the new satellite boxes. It worked flawlessly. I am so grateful for this community keeping ReplayTV up with new technology.

Onward to a few days ago, when one of the ReplayTVs got stuck at the "Please Wait" screen. I replaced the hard drive with the one from an unused ReplayTV I've been keeping as a spare.

(Question: Does Replay allow new machines to be activated? I didn't put the new ReplayTV in because I was worried about what happens with a new activation. Don't tell anyone, but I haven't been billed since the service shutdown debacle last summer, and I didn't want to disrupt that in case I'm getting away with free service.)

Everything went well until I tried to install the new IR codes. As the title says, the script ran, and I got the clock display, but the CPU meter never displayed. I spent three days trying lots of things from this forum thread (THANKS AGAIN!). I inserted other Linux commands to see if the ReplayTV could execute commands, and it did delete a photo from the "install" folder. I was getting closer to the solution.

SOLUTION:

I had to create the folders on the ReplayTV hard drive where the files are copied to. This is the script I used:
Code:
AppShell ToggleClock
mkdir /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irbdata
AppShell ToggleMemMeter
mkdir /name/system/user/mirror/sys-setup-gaea/data/irCodeset
AppShell TogglePositionMeter

AppShell ToggleCpuMeter

After struggling with this for days on end, you have no idea how happy I was to finally see that elusive CPU meter. I threw my arms up and did a happy dance right then and there.

I still have the old busted hard drive to deal with, as well as setting up the channels and recordings on the fixed ReplayTV, but that'll be a breeze compared to the last few days.

I can't thank you guys enough!

Yeah, this is no secret. They appear to let any machine be activated, and they don't appear to be billing for the service. Since they pretty much cancelled all of their subscription accounts, it would be pretty difficult for them to start up billing again. As an example, try to get to your account information, and that will be the big clue that they really aren't supporting that any longer...

If I had to guess, I would guess that the ReplayTV wasn't fully updated after replacing the hard drive. I don't know what state that other ReplayTV was in that you took the hard drive out of, but it takes a couple of net connects to get a new hard drive fully upgraded. So, if you had replaced the drive in the ReplayTV and then gone through the Quick Setup, you probably only need to do one more manual net connect to get the Zone folders (where the IR Blaster codes are kept) fully populated. So, I think that was the difference, that previously you had fully upgraded drives in your operating ReplayTVs, and because you put in the new hard drive, it wasn't quite yet fully upgraded. I think if you had gotten the ReplayTV all the way up to fully running, then the boot CD probably would have worked properly...
