"Used" might be more accurate. Once the receiver is up and running the SAT signal screen will give a better idea of 9 SWiM levels than the LEDs on the meter.
This meter is most useful if coax is being reused and may have cable rated splitters behind walls/craw spaces, etc. It is basically a "go/no go" status.

Well, my prep worked. The installer showed up on time at 8:30AM and was done with all the hardware install and unit reboots by 9:20AM. It then took D* about 40 minutes to get the authorization to take within their system but the installer stayed on them until all units showed authorized. The install was exactly like I anticipated and all was done by 10AM with half that time being phone time to complete the authorization.

Doug - my streak has continued one more time - got a pleasant, knowledgeable installer who did a great job.

Hip, hip, hooray!
