To install a RID file on the ReplayTV, use the following procedure.
1) Create a bootable CD using the image from
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
2007 DirecTV D10
2008 LG LST-3xxx
2010 Sylvania SRZ3000
2011 USDTV Receiver
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

After reading your posts here and using your RIDGen tool, I've created and uploaded the IR codes for the new Viewsat 2000 STB. Found the RM file for the Viewsat over at JP1 downloads and using RemoteMaster and your RIDGen tool I created the new rid file. Followed the readme for installing via DVArchive and WiRNS. Loaded it to my replay and now my new code 1000 is there!
Can't thank you enough!!
I'll attach my files for anyone else who wants to add the Viewsat IR code (use code 1000) to their Replay..
