I have a one recvr install in a 20 story building. getting cable from the 5th floor to the first is not an issue. The issue is the mst 774 and 2 swm 8 modules. Do I need to put my own swm 8 module in or can I use a port directly off of the mst 774. I have no way of knowing if there are 8 tuners running off of each of the existing swm 8's, which would make putting a 2 way swm splitter on there a bad idea. Can I plug one line for an h24 directly into the mst 774 or do I have to use a swm 8 module?

Seems like the mst 774 is a tap, so one line won't have all the SATs.
You'd need four of the taps to feed a switch or SWiM

Exactly the MST ports only feed other SWMs or devices that hold SWMs like FMC6 or the expanders.

I have to ask, are you the MDU system service tech for this buliding, or are you just an average installer from company X doing the install?

If you are an average installer from the local company X, then you need to walk away from this install and get in touch with the MDU service tech.

He is the only one that knows EXECTLY how the building is wired.
