This should be moved to the D* forum. They should be able to help you!

You can't find the RID because that "old" receiver doesn't have one.
DirecTV should upgrade that RCA receiver with a more current one.
Probably, the R16.

Actually the old receivers have an ID number, it's written to the card when married , no one can see it though without special tools. They just didn't post the receiver ID number on the old boxes.

BOTTOM LINE - D* will NO longer newly activate ANY receivers w/out a RID#, period. That's why they will NOT give you new card.
You're SOL with that old receiver - you'll have to get a new(er) one that at least has a RID, sorry.
