    Having MRV installed today. Also having the Series 2 DVR 80 upgraded to HD DVR. I have a 5 LNB dish, and a Multi switch 16 in the basement. I have been using the Beta MRV with no issues
    My question is: What should I expect the install to look like?
    I asked the CSR to request a SWM 16. I want to have dual tuners on all the receivers. the two receivers that are located in the upstairs bedrooms only have 1 cable running to each of them, with no way to get another cable to either receiver. The 2 receivers upstairs are the HR22 and the DVR 80(which is being upgraded)
    Is there a best scenario for my install? Just in case the tech is not up to speed yet with MRV.

    Which SWiM that gets installed will all depend on total number of active tuners you will have.

    I have 5 DVR's with 2 tuners each, so I guess I am looking to have 10 tuners active.

    SWiM-16 is a must.
