I thought it was four out? Wouldn't I need a new LNB and a SWiM16 unit?

Four from the dish LNB into the SWiM16. One or two OUT from the SWiM, split as necessary. Easy, peasy. :)

One out for each internal SWiM 8. You need a non-SWiM LNB with four lines to the SWiM 16.

The only problem with that is that MRV won't work across the 16 and 8. :(


Couldn't you attach each SWiM to the router and let the network take care of bridging the 8 and 16?

Don't quote me but I thought the SWM32 doesn't cross over each SWM8? So you would be SOL then too. But someone more knowledgable will come along and correct me if I am wrong.

Actually, no. A SWiM32 is just 2 SWiM16's in the same case. From what I've read on here they aren't bridged and would be separate too.

I've wondered that but have never been able to test myself and haven't seen where anyone else has tried it either.

First of all let's try to keep on topic.

Second, five simultaneous recordings are possible but only two can be OTA since DIRECTV does not have a 5 tuner OTA module.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.
