Is there any word on whether DISH will eventually have a capability similar to DirecTV's SWM (single wire multiswitch)? I just installed a DirecTV SWM system in a 170 unit highrise in which each residential unit has just one coax but can readily pull a second, and now they want me to do something for them to support DISH Network, but I doubt that many of them would be satisfied with the capabilities of a simple DPP, two-tuner-in-one-receiver maximum.

Most likely, I'll just put a DPP 44 in each junction closet for now and tell them to lump it.

DPP44 is as good as it gets.
