I had a question as I plan to convert from standard LNB to SWIM.  The reason being is that when it turns to hot season each year, certain times of day, I have some of the HD channels go out, so I suspect it could be LNB/Heat related.

 

Am I correct that one end of the Power Inverter goes all the way to the LNB?  

 

The second end of Power Invert can either go directly to a satellite receiver (if you only have one, is that correct)?

Or if you have more than one satellite receiver, you can use a SWiM splitter (2 way or 4 way or 8 way but the less splits the better).

Is this correct?

And if you only want one receiver hooked up, you don't need the splitter?  Thanks.

"yes" to all your questions with the only caveat that the PI can be routed through a splitter

I wouldn't want to burn the guy, and if you call it will trigger a charge back.
If he keeps "dicking with you", well that's another story.

"Frankly" if your coax runs aren't "really long", it doesn't matter.

There is a 30 dB loss budget between the SWiM and the farthest receiver.
If you're within this, then it makes no difference if you're only having 15 dB of loss, or 24 dB of loss, as the receiver isn't going to do anything different.

How long is really long? I need to connect a receiver that is roughly 30 meters from the swim. No go?

Over 60 meters would be in the range of "really long"
