I am thinking about upgrading some of my DIRECTV equipment. I still have 3 of the TIVO type HR-20-250's which I use primarily for OTA channels but some DTV stuff. I have a 6x8 Multiswitch which has 2 runs each to my TIVO DVR’s and 2 to one HR-20. If I install a SWM16 and connect it directly to the dish, can I then use the 4 legacy ports to link to the 6x8 multiswitch so that I can still have 8 legacy outputs and a fully functional SWM16? Thanks for any comments or suggestions.
The Legacy and Flex Outs can cascade to another SWiM-16, or, among other things, a 6x8 Multiswitch. So the Flex Outs might be used for something other than cascading to another SWiM-16.

Yes, you should be able to do that.
