thanks VOS.
I'm obviously not an electrical engineer, but I think I got it.

Picture Quality, is critical to me. I work in the graphic arts and have a very keen eye for image detail, and quality. In fact that is what lead me to D* some 13 years ago.
I have also invested alot of money in my home theater, and do not want to lose ANY pq.
From you have said I will not see pq degradation what so ever, thanks.

It seems that my Zinwell multiswitch will need to be replaced for my conversion to SWiM as well right?

Yes going to a SWiM setup means the Zinwell has to go.
If you have eight or less tuners, a change in the LNB to a SWiM LNB is needed.
If you have more than 8 tuners, then the Zinwell will need to be changed for a SWiM-16, which has two coax [eight tuners on each].
A.K.A VOS

Then this will require the SWiM-16, and should be fairly easy to place where your Zinwell is and use splitters on the two outputs to feed your receivers.
