I notice that when fast forwarding a show through commercials if the 2 boxes are on the same SWM Port on the SWM16 it is significantly faster, in fact when fast forwarding across the 2 ports it is almost slow enough to not see when the show has started back. Has anyone else noticed this?

My Setup:

HR34 - 1 Owned, 1 Leased
HR24 - 1 Owned, 3 Leased
HR23 - 1 Leased
H24 - 2 Leased, 2 Owned
H25 - 1 Owned

Total Tuners - 25, but we can never have too many...

DECA wise, this makes little sense.
The DECA is the same 525-575 MHz signal.
It might have more to do with the receivers connected than the DECA itself.

My Setup:

HR34 - 1 Owned, 1 Leased
HR24 - 1 Owned, 3 Leased
HR23 - 1 Leased
H24 - 2 Leased, 2 Owned
H25 - 1 Owned

Total Tuners - 25

This might have a lot more to do with it.
How do you have 25 tuners off a SWiM?

Easiest way is just eliminate the 2nd dish and run 4 short cables from the 4 swm16 legacy ports to the 4 inputs of the swm8.

"The approved method" is to use 2-way splitters to feed both SWiMs. These do add a bit of loss between the dish/LNB and the SWiMs.
There's a pretty good article here on the options: http://forums.solids...ers-in-the-home
