Hey All,

I just bought the Showstopper 2000 and I am setting it up with Toshiba DST3000 HDTV DirecTV STB. I am using IR Blaster which I am certain is positioned correctly. I started with the Toshiba code - no good. Tried every other Satellite code - no good. Called Panasonic - they did not know about the DST3000. Panasonic called Replay TV who called Toshiba who said they would get back to them sometime with the code!!!


I am sure I cannot be the first person to try this combination. Any help greatly appreciated.

Did you try the Hughes codes? That is who designed the box and the Hughes remote I have controls the DST3000. It should work.

Thanks for the response. I put in the Hughes code but with no success. Any other suggestions gratefully received.

Did you try calling Panasonic or Replay? I can't think of what other codes to use, I know that the box uses Hughes codes. I have a DST3000 and a Hughes E45 receiver that use the same remote. I am not sure if Hughes uses different codes for their other models. The showstopper I have works with the Hughes E45, but I use the serial connection. Something they forgot to include on the HD boxes(except for sony).

Hey ilkevinli,


Thanks for responding. I have put in code 0749 which according to the manual is the Hughes stellite code. I have the adhesive sensor attached to the DST 3000 center by the green on/off light. My showstopper is the PV-HS2000. Still no success - it tells me there is no video signal and I cannot control the DST 3000. I have tried both composite and s video connections.


Any other thoughts. Still no reply from Panasonic.


Thanks,


Andrew

Hi Andrew,


I know in the Sony SVR-2000 you had to go into the menu and select what video input you were using. Did you try that ?

Yes, I have the correct video input. The setup forces you to do that before you input the code. I guess I am stuck until I get the correct code. The only other possibility I can think of is that the IR blaster sensors are faulty??

Thanks again for your help.
