I will have an ethernet cable near where the SWiM-8 will be installed, so getting the broadband package unit hooked in would be easy.

Got the MRV installed today and I'm up and running. I called D* to active MRV and was given the 3rd degree for about 20 minutes.. 'you don't have a SWiM dish', 'we didn't install it for you', etc. I had to keep telling the CSR that I install the SWiM myself, that I had a Slimline 5 LNB dish, etc. The CSR also didn't even believe that I had a SWM-8 installed and made be read to her what each port was labeled. After what seemed like forever, she finally forwarded me to someone who could actually activate MRV on my two HR24s.
