I currently am using a HR21 and HR24 for mutliroom viewing. I want to add a receiver to the bedroom. If I get something like a H25 will it be able to see the playlist and watch TV from the other receivers.

I think I remember seeing that option, however I can't find where I read it now.

I have a SWIM 8. If the above combo works, will it use the legacy port or come from the splitter?

If that is not possible and I add another HR24 will my SWIM 8 work with it? It will handle up to 8 tuners correct?

Sounds like it will work "IF" you connect it to the splitter, since the legacy ports don't share the networking.
