    Dripping...
    AFAIK you'll still need to have the filter between the splitter and the LNB.

    Excited to participate!
    Thanks very much Doug!

    I'm interested to see if there are any speed differences between DECA and my hardwired network.

    Good thing I am not a lot of people. ;)

    DirecTV can't do everything for everyone and still keep things affordable. No, I do not work for them, but I do know business.

    I have the SWM LNB and DECA. The DECA installation for the SWM LNB is the same as for the stand alone SWM.

    Thanks again for all the help with the SWM8.

    I ordered SWM8 from Solidignal.com and the Skywalker splitters from a1components.

    Now let's see what comes first the HR24, SWM8 or the splitters. And my birthday isn't til June.:)

    Have had that for quite a while, after buying a compression tool, stripper and ends I cant believe how I ever lived without. Might have to make sure I have enough ends though.

    I'm ok as long as it is just the occasional bachelor party, the problem is most of my friends are married, guess I'll have to get new ones.

    You guys and your fancy setups. It's all about the AT-9 to the splitters to the WB68's here. :D

    If I add any more receivers, I'm going to need a SWM16 myself.

    +1 on the Skywalker splitters!
