Slimline 5 dish
Swm1/pwr (ch1-8) to hr34
DC/PWR to power inserter
Swm2 (ch 9-16) to 1x4 swm splitter
Swm splitter to two hr22-100 receivers.
Is there a way to change the setup so all receivers share content? With the above setup the two hr22 receivers share and the hr34 is alone.

If you don't want to do sub-models at least do the new equipment...I'm just sayin'
Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth. That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

You shouldn't need to move everything over to only one SWiM output.
Just had a brain storm. Possibly run Swm1 from the SWM-16 to the 1x4 and all receivers from that but set one hr22 to single tuner rather than dual. Should only be 8 active tuners on one deca cloud. Think that may work?
The SWiM-16 has a crossover between the two SWiM sections just for this purpose.
If they can't see each other, check things like their IP addresses, to make sure they're on the same subnet.

Does your HR34 see one or both of your HR22s?

While it doesn't "combine" the two sets of eight tuners [since the SWiM wouldn't work] it does combine the DECAs into one network.
I did not know the swm-16 actually combined the two sets of 8 tuners. Also it may have been good to note that I have a CCK (coax) connected from router to 1x4 & Internet works on all receiver. Which logically supports the cross over function. All IP numbers and sub net are correct lack the last 3 of the IP of coarse. Should I reset all receivers and go through normal T.S. Steps? Or could it be something else?
So the CCK is sending out all the right IP/networking stuff from your router, but the HR34 can't be seen from the others?
You do have sharing setup on the HR34, right?

What does the HR34 show under whole home [in the setup menu]?
The hr34 can not see either hr22. I had nothing on the hr34 but just started recording something and now that shows up on both hr22s. So they can see the 34 but the 34 can't see the 22s. Yes sharing is set to yes on all receivers.
It might simply need a reboot if it shows authorized, but if it doesn't, then you'll need to get it reauthorized.

It does sound now, like it's something simple [glitch].
It is authorized in the status. I reset via the menu option and will post results when done.

This was simpler than I thought it was. I thought I read somewhere that the hr34 did not share appropriately some how. I rest the 34 and nothing, reset each 22 by red button and it is all working. Thank you all!
