    Is it possible to connect 2 SW16's for MRV and see all receivers?

    Yes but it needs to be done through ethernet, so each needs a CCK, or BB DECA

    This just came up yesterday and before I release it, I need to do some testing to find the limitations. ;)

    Connect a CCK to each SWiM-16 and connect each to your router.

    Tell him a BB DECA for each then. Same thing but the old name [CCK is the newer]

    Great, that is what he has just connected a BB Deca for each SW16 and each is connected by ethernet to router...Hopefully when he finishes all receivers in house will see each other.

    Thank you very much Old School

    Limitations? It allows the end user to receive every channel in HD right? :lol:

    Make sure you create a training plan/video :D

    Everything seeems to be perfect I believe all my receivers see each other. Rather painless upgrade fron 4 4 x 8 multiswitches which resulted in a few HD channels dropping out. All works great now.
