My setup is like this: SWM3 LnBF to power inserter to SWM 4way splitter then to one HR20-100 and two HR25-500's with the unused ports terminated with resistors. Signal levels on all 3 birds are in the 80+ range. This setup is in my 5th wheel trailer, when the unit is at home it works fine all though I have the whole home setup at the house.
My understanding is with SWM the single wire is supposed to be able to power both tuners.
My power on seq. was to have the power inserter up and running before I plug in the receivers.
I hope this is enough info.
BTW: distance from dish to power inserter is 50 feet and after that 10 feet to splitter then less than 5 feet to boxes.
