    I have appointment for hd-34 install tomorrow morning. I originally asked for one client but have decided to keep both of my HR24s and turn in my H24. I have whole home with Cinema kit installed. I know that there is a SWM installed. I need to know if this is possible.

    It's possible, but with the last minute change the installer may not have the parts needed.

    Yes you're going from 8 tuners to 9 and 9 require a SWiM-16 which might not be on their truck.

    Thanks for the fast response. Without the SWM 16 would the receivers still work with the SWM thats installed even if I lose the option of recording 9 programs.

    Yes if you disabled a tuner on HR24 but no because I doubt a tech would do that for you because it is against policy.

    I tech wont do that, because it will showup as incomplete install. Just call 'em and tell 'em that you decided to keep the second HR.

    Believe me, it happens all the time. And the warehouse does have SWiM-16s.
