I have arranged to have my H21 replaced with a HR34. They will also swap out the D10 for a D12, install SWM, DECA with CCK-W or CCK bb.
We do use many of the channels on the 119 sat so I think I still need the 5LNB.
What is the best setup for my install?
Would it be better to:
1. Install a second sat dish (5LNB SWM with 4way SWM splitter)
2. Keep the legacy dish and use a SWM-16 to feed both units(putting a BSF on the 2nd SWM16 output to block my home's DECA cloud in the 2nd home)
3. Keep the legacy dish and use 2 x SWM8 (one for each house) or SWM8 for my house and the legacy non-SWM Zinwell for the other house
Which of the above options gives the strongest signal with the least amount of conflicts or problems? Which options is the simplest for the installer? Which options allow for future upgrades (adding receivers or adding SWM/DECA to the second house)? Are the newer SWM LNB/dishes any better than the older legacy 5LNB dish? Do any do better with rain fade?
