You should be just fine.

Yes, that LNB (any SWiM lnb for that matter) will support up to 8 tuners. Each DVR takes 2, so you would be using 6 of the 8 available.

Great, thanks a lot! Gonna go ahead and buy this then.

1 x HR22-100 HD-DVR

1 x HR34-700 Genie

I've been getting the 771 error for the past 2 days here in San Antonio. Worked fine. Went to bed when a front moved through that night. Now all 6 receivers have 771 error. First time we've had freezing temperatures since the install. 20's to low 30's without getting above freezing for the past 48 hours. Anyway to know if it is the LNB short of replacing it? I have a Super Bowl party planned and DTV won't have a service call until next week. Does warming the LNB have any effect. The dish is for the most part out of reach. Takes a 30 ft ladder to get to it and on a steep roof. Have a SWM16 switch mounted outside as well.
2 HR24-500s, 4 HR20-700s, 1 H24-500, DECA MRV, SWM3 Slimline dish with SWM 16

I have an sl5 that stopped working last night at -5 (SE michigan) ,  I verified the problem by 1st checking for snow on dish, was none, and then installing a new sl3 right below the sl5, (last night at 9pm, at -5, lots o fun)  sl3 worked just fine...... but I was too late to catch Blacklist at 10pm so I will have to figure out how I am going to watch that..........grrrrrr....
