I have 4 hr20s and want to switch out the oldest for a genie i have a swim dish what else do i need?
Well, you'll need to swap out your SMW-LNB for a legacy LNB as you'll now have 11 tuners and the SWM-LNB can only handle 8 tuners. You'll then need a SWM16 and three more coax cables from the dish to it and at least one 4-way splitter (which you probably already have) so you can put the 3 HR20s on one leg and the Genie on the other. You'll also need DECA units for the HR20's if you are using MRV over your home network. If you don't want to use DECA, you will need a Band Stop Filter on the leg with the HR20s.
Are any of your units the HR20-100 model? If so, they have a unique way to connect that requires a BSF and 2-way green labeled splitter.
To clarify, that is for when using DECA with them.
