Can I hook up a HR20-700 to the legacy port of SWM-8. I know I can just use 1 tuner. Also do I have to add the BBC to it!

Sony 55EX500, Vizio 47", Sony 40EX400 Samsung un46eh6000 all via HDMI, HR 34, HR24, HR20, HR22

You will not get the new HD channels from the new satellites. But yes you can to get 101/110/119.

Since Ka-lo doesn't come through the legacy ports, there is no need for BBCs. If your local HD comes off the Ka-hi 99/103, you will get them.
