I had them put in an SWM-8 for now. They are supposed to "check again" if I can get the SWM 16 for free. Doesn't matter right now; they don't have any in stock anyway. It is kind of hard to get. So in the meantime one of the DVRs is going to have only one active tuner.
The SD receiver I got was supposed to run a couple of TVs that aren't going to be used much anyway. I am thinking about sending that one back and using the output of the HD receiver to run the other SD receiver. Hook up a Modulator and get some RF remotes.
Does anyone know if both HDMI and component outputs are active at the same time from the HD receiver?
That was a good move. But, you should call D* immediately
and insist that the SWM-8 be replaced with a SWiM-16.All
the outputs from DirecTV receivers are active (which is a lot better than the idiotic Scientific Atlanta cable boxes that won't output anything
when the TV that HDMI is attached to is turned off). (But, I don't know what, if anything, comes out of component when HDMI is 1080p. I would assume composite and s-video, if there is one, have 480i like always.)
