running all new lines to a central port in basement with my pi also so i can have locals and two lines to each room if needed. i also have a r 22-100 in my bedroom. leaving one line on each one in case i would like to use it for a additional receiver later on. thinking i would never have more than four receiver going it any one time

with a swm, you only need one line for each directv RCVR. dual would just be a backup line.
yes that would be one cable line from the cable company and dual rg 6 for directv. in the past i have had a hr 20-700 and r 15-500 in the same equipment cabinet going to my new def with a third 15 in the spare bedroom. also if necessary i have a sw 8 switch to use if needed
remember with a swm you have 8 tuners max. that means tuners, not rcvrs a dvr is 2 tuners
you can use the two Legacy ports on the external SWM to get signal to the R15
