I want to get rid of my BB Converters. What hardware do I need to purchase? I am going to buy the DIRECTV AU9-S-SWM Five LNB Ka/Ku Slim Line Dish Antenna SL-5 LNB Combo (AU9-S-SWM). Will I only need to purchase a
DIRECTV SWS-4 Satellite 4-Way Wide Band (2 -2150 MHz) Splitter (SWS-4) to run two HR24's? Will I need to run one or two cables into the HR24 to use both tuners? I'm new to the SWM stuff.
Thanks

Current set up is:
DIRECTV Five LNB Ka/Ku Slim Line Dish Antenna for MPEG-4 C HD Programming SL5 (AU9-S) and a Zinwell WB616 DIRECTV Wide Band 6x16 Multi-Switch (WB616) running two 2 HR24's.

Seems like all you would need is the SWiM LNB & PI, and the splitter:

Use only one coax to each receiver's #1 input.

Thanks for the reply.

So this is all I need? I know I can do without the dish but I want to replace it anyway.
