    With all the BBC talk, and the backwards PI connection, has anybody connected a BBC to a Hx2x receiver in conjunction with a SWM system? What happens? No, I don't want to know enough to risk it myself lol

    As long as there are no restrictions I would like to order a SWM 8 and install it. I know there are many here who have them and would like to know a place to purchase one with out getting ripped off. Also I would like a complete kit, every dvr will have a home run so one big splitter at the SWM 8 would be good. Please let me know your thoughts. Also I will be using all 8 available tuners so in the future I may be looking to use my WB68 or add another SWM 8.

    I am just north of Higgins lake. Right in between Roscommon and Grayling to be more precise.
    I know that I have extra bbc's here also. Does anybody use them much anymore?
    I was just thinking of a switch between the 2 boxes or the extra tv, not for sure yet? I do believe I have a 6x8 on the pole with the dish.Is that considered a multiswitch or SWiM??

    That would probably be a WB68 multiswitch.

    I have 2 Slimlines in my setup. One is a SWM3 LNB. The other is a non SWM with 2 6x8s
    in parallel. So I can go either way. Would it be better if I went with the non SWM for the test?

    Thanks, I looked around and Solid Signal seems to have a good price. I am not too confident about buying one on Ebay.

    How long do I have to get all my stuff in place before the new receivers show up? Is it usually a week or couple of weeks? Not trying to pry, just prepare.

    For people wanting to upgrade to a SWM8, ebay sometimes has decent prices on used ones. I bought one that was ADVERTISED as being new with power inserter for $78 shipped, but when it arrived (and was clearly used and not packaged in original boxes), I pointed it out to the seller and got a $20 credit. Should've just gone to SolidSignal to begin with, but what the heck - it works. :grin:

    I've been using Skywalker splitters on my SWM for two years. There are others using them also. I highly recommend them.
