I've read the various threads and guides, but I'm still not 100% sure how the installation is going to work for me.
I attached a few photos of my current installation. The 4 lines are coming down from the satellite, then into that cable-splitter box. From there, 4 coax lines run into the garage and then throughout the house. (there are 4 coax receptacles in the house).
Installing the SWM-8 at the satellite is not going to work for me. So I though I would do it this way:
1. Attach the SWM to the wall underneath the cable-splitter box thingy.
2. Run the 4 lines from the satellite into the SWM.
3. Take the 4 coax cables that supply the house, remove them from those splitters outside, and pull them into the garage.
3. Install the power inserter inside the garage.
4. Run one line of RG-6 from the power inserter (15' minimum?), through the wall, and into the SWM outside (connecting red to red, of course!)
5. Connect coax from the power inserter's IRD output to a 4-way splitter.
6. Connect the splitter to the 4 lines that feed the house.
Does that all sound about right?
BTW, you can see in that closeup picture that one of the 4 lines from the satellite was snipped. That's because at the time it had nowhere to go, since there was only one line of coax into living room, and one of the 3 bedrooms has cable Internet. Dumb question, but I assume I'll need to crimp that and connect it to the SWM to get this all working properly?
