DISH 211 IR codes?


I upgraded to a 211 DISH receiver, and havent had time to get it working with my sagetv server and USBUIRT yet. I just currently record HD shows OTA using the HDHomeRun since my old DISH 811 lost most of the channels after DISH NETWORK upgraded their *stuff* in august or sept of 2008.

I setup my original sagetv server in 2005, I l forgot how I orignally got it working with the 811. Since its been working pretty good since then. Never messed with that part since getting it working first time.

Is there a file someone can send me with the IR codes for the 211?? It seems like I remember that sagetv uses a file with IR codes in it, to control receivers.

Thanks for the codes!!!!

Can you remind me how I can use them. Its been so long since I setup my 811 (nov 2005) I dont remember how/where to put the files.

Does the file need a specific file name?

Thanks for info.

So what else do I need to do to sagetv server settings to tell it about my new 211 receiver, and also to get rid of the 811 receiver. Since I will be unplugging the 811 anytime now. NO need to keep it hanging around in the sagetv setup/settings.

Maybe this is all covered in the SagetV manual? I dont mind reading it again. :-O

I just dont have to do things like this very much. Since sagetv usually works really good all the time. I just thought I would ask a few questions out here. The forum is always very helpful when I get stuck on something like this.

I added a screenshot of my current setup screen. Im starting to think there is nothing to really remove for the 811. I think all I really have to do is to figure out how to tell sagetv to use the new IR codes for the 211. And plug in the svideo outputs from the 211 into the USB PVR device...where the 811 is currently plugged in.
