    a month ago i had a swm installed as part of the dishmovers package and they used the current cable wires running into my living room . would like to run new dual rg-6 under my floor and also use attach a single line of cable for my locals. as comcast is charging me 42.00 a month for my high speed internet & and basic cable channels 2 -23 also.

    running all new lines to a central port in basement with my pi also so i can have locals and two lines to each room if needed. i also have a r 22-100 in my bedroom. leaving one line on each one in case i would like to use it for a additional receiver later on. thinking i would never have more than four receiver going it any one time

    I am a little confused. When you say locals, are you referring to Over The Air Locals. if so, they should not be run on the same line as the Directv signal. You should use a separate system for those locals.

    yes that would be one cable line from the cable company and dual rg 6 for directv. in the past i have had a hr 20-700 and r 15-500 in the same equipment cabinet going to my new def with a third 15 in the spare bedroom. also if necessary i have a sw 8 switch to use if needed

    with a swm, you only need one line for each directv RCVR. dual would just be a backup line.
    remember with a swm you have 8 tuners max. that means tuners, not rcvrs a dvr is 2 tuners

    you can use the two Legacy ports on the external SWM to get signal to the R15
