    The recording limitation is the R22, not SWiM. SWiM can handle up to eight tuners. If you had four R22s, you could record 8 different programs at once off a single lead sent out through a splitter to the four DVRs.

    Yes, the SWM sounds a lot better than having to run another cable around the house.

    I do have a power inserter, all I need to get is the SWM LNB for my current satellite.

    Thanks for the info harsh. Sounds like going with the SWM will way better in the long run. Like in the future when I may have to change the setup again.

    NO.
    Set the dish to 18" round and multi switch.
    It will only get SD channels from the 101.
