    Just curious for folks that ordered the "Connected Home" installation and needed SWiM hardware installed. I'm wondering if you had a WB68 multiswitch installed did the installers give you a SWiM8 in it's place or a SWiMLNB?

    I got a SWM16, even though a SWM8 would have handled my four HR's. I previously had a WB68.

    That's really strange since SWiM16's are as scarce as hens teeth and folks needing them have a devil of a time getting them.

    If you are under the 8 tuner limit you should get a SWiM lnb as long as it is available which shouldn't be an issue.

    I had an AT-9 sidecar dish with a WB68 switch and they replaced it with a SWiM 3LNB and a "green label" 8 way splitter

    I had an At9 & SWM8 and it was replaced with a SWiM LNB(green label). So if anyone wants a SWM8 and a power inserter PM me.!

    I didn't vote. I had a SWM-8 (self installed, not green label). It was replaced with SWMLNB.

    I'm playing roulette. Have a SWiM8 now, install scheduled for Saturday.
    Also have a 5LNB SWM and 3 LNB SWM not connected.

    Crossing my fingers I get a SWiM16 out of the deal to complete my SWM collection. May have to hide the SWM8 and reconnect all to the WB68 before tech shows up :D

    Use the WB68 for one HR20 that won't work on the SWM8 and told CS agent to note that on the record so perhaps a HR24 shows up too.?

    Will let you know how it all turns out.
