Of course. If you really can't then that's cool I'll just try and figure it out tonight. I've got to record a radio show 1st so te earliest I could Skype is 10 EST. I would just like it setup right. T

he way I mentioned in the 1st post video was how DTV had it setup and I made the switch to move the Ethernet to get internet on the downstairs box.

A tech was out to clean up some poor connectors, changed out a 8-way splitter for a 4-way, but left off the coax for the BB DECA.

"Done" :lol:

VOS got me up and running. Turns out it was as simple as connecting a coax outside that wasn't reconnected after a recent install.

Thanks guys!!

One more question. So you can now use splitters instead of the multiswitch days with this new equipment? Or when you all say splitter do you mean Multiswitch? I don't have any plans to expand but I wanted to be sure I understood the terms in regards to a SWM setup.

SWiM is a splitter based system, where the earlier "legacy" system wasn't.

You can add a 2-way [green labeled] splitter to any of your four coax to add another receiver/DVR.
