    How Do You Update Keys?
    You can do it two ways:

    1. load the latest opkey file...

    2. use your REMOTE control... Below is a ficticious example when you already have the KEYs to update KEYS using your REMOTE CONTROL:


    Having a Computer "opkey" File:
    1. D/L the latest opkey file (usually a zip) and UNzip; remember where the unzipped file is located on your computer.
    2. Power "OFF" your ViewSat and hook up the NULL MODEM CABLE between your PC and your ViewSat

    MANUAL PRETEND Public Key Change

    The PRETEND Public Keys have changed to:

    Key 00: AF 98 74 44 1C 65 77 D8

    Key 01: AF E3 E1 1D 89 4E 53 45

    On the REMOTE CONTROL, you'll be using the 0 through 9 keys for the number you need and...

    A = F1
    B = F2
    C = F3
    D = F4
    E = "LAST" key (circular arrow key to RIGHT of "0" )
    F = "TEXT" key (2 rows ABOVE F4 key on right side of REMOTE)

    MANUAL KEY CHANGE in your ViewSat:

    MENU--INSTALLATION--CODE--NAGRA

    For Viewsat Ultra go to: Menu--User settings---code menu--nagra

    LEFT arrow until "Dish" displays in the top line [be sure enter it in the Dish 01 01 00 section (not 00 01 00)] and you have at least 4 lines of numbers which has 4 rows. The 4 rows we are most interested in are:

    08 xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx
    09 xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx
    88 xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx
    89 xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx

    DOWN arrow until the REDis on "08"

    RIGHT arrow x 1 puts you on the 2nd line of numbers with "08" in the first column;
    you start punching in the below at the 2nd column

    "F1" + "Text" = "AF", RIGHT arrow

    "9" + "8" = "98", RIGHT arrow

    "7" + "4" = "74", RIGHT arrow

    "4" + "4" = "44", RIGHT arrow

    "1" + "F3" key = "1C", RIGHT arrow

    "6" + "5" = "65", RIGHT arrow

    "7" + "7" = "77", RIGHT arrow

    "F4" key + "8" = "D8", RIGHT arrow ...

    finishing the top line
    You should have the highlighted box in the first column of the 2nd row on top of "08"


    DOWN arrow, RIGHT arrow to the 2nd box in the 3rd row

    "F1" + "Text" = "AF", RIGHT arrow

    "LAST CHANNEL" key (below "9" key) + "3" = "E3", RIGHT arrow

    "LAST CHANNEL" key (below "9" key) + "1" = "E1", RIGHT arrow

    "1" + "F4" key = "1D", RIGHT arrow

    "8" + "9" = "89", RIGHT arrow

    "4" + "LAST CHANNEL" key = "4E", RIGHT arrow

    "5" + "3" = "53", RIGHT arrow

    "4" + "5" = "45", RIGHT arrow

    EXIT, OK ("YES") to save

    EXIT to TV screen and watch tv

    ----------------------
    This puts the PRETEND KEYS into the 08 & 09 KEY lines.

    If you need to put KEYS into the 88 & 89 KEY lines... do above and substitute 88 for the "08" line and 89 for the "09" line
