Any FAQ on what needs to do to set yourself up for receiving shows from
others thru Poopli or other?

I imagine some port forwarding is needed. My ISP blocks some ports coming
in such as 80, 8080, etc.

If you give someone your Replay ID, how does another person send a show to
it?

See pages 51&52 of the manual and also see more info on the AVS forum.
Basically, setup is pretty simple:

Menu:Setup:Internet Identity & Address Book:Change Internet Identity
Once there, pick a nickname for your unit that the public will see and
set a port. Use 29000 or higher since there's nothing else in that
range. Note your unique Internet ID number that looks like
00004-5xxxx-xxxxx.
In your router, forward port 29000 to the RTV's IP address. That's it.

Now go to www.poopli.com and click the IVS Test and see if it all works.

To send a show, you get the other person's Internet ID number and add it
to your address book. To send, go to Replay Guide, highlight the show
and select "Send Show." Put a check next to the address you're sending
to and click Send. The other person will see it under the Received tab
and once they accept it, it will start to transfer. A 1 hour show at
standard quality takes 6 to 10 hours to transfer - so don't delete it
till you know the other party has it.
