I've spent most of the past few days trying to figure out how use Replay (5540) with either the Comcast DCH70 STB or DTA DC50X (made by Pace). Like many others, I previously split the "cable in" and ran one through the Comcast STB and the other through the Replay (bipassing the STB), and this was allowing me to record channels 2-30 with Replay, and to view all channels (but not record) using the STB. On 25 Sep, Comcast made a change locally which put the Replay out of business (no longer getting any signal on 2-30). Is there an easy way to use RTV to either of these devices so that I can again start recording? I would prefer a setup that allows me to watch a different channel than I'm recording, but anything that will allow me to record again will be fine. I've read all the posts concerning taking the hard drive out of RTV and the hard drive out of my computer and downloading a file, but all that stuff is way over my head, so I'm looking for something simple, if that even exists. I have the original IR blaster cable that came with RTV and can see exactly where it is supposed to be taped on the DCH70 (even though the part that fits over the IR sensor seems awfully small.) I watched a youtube video explaining how to hook up the DTA DC50X with RTV, but could not tell from the video exactly where the IR blaster is supposed to be taped to it. If anyone can tell me the exact hookup of the cables for either device, and then how to set up the IR blaster with the proper code, it would be greatly appreciated. If you prefer, you can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks!!
