Hello,

I'm setting up WHS on my boxes, and want to know what equipment I need. My current equipment:

  • 3LNB HD dish (non-SWiM)
  • Old Zinwell splitter (non-SWiM)
  • 1 x HR24-100 (2 coax connections with BBC's)
  • 1 x HR21-200 (2 coax connections with BBC's)
  • 1 x H21-100 (1 coax connection with BBC)

Based on my research, I need to do the following:

  • Upgrade to a 3LNB SWiM -OR- SWiM splitter
  • Buy 1 x CCK to connect to router
  • Buy 2 x DECA adapters; 1 for the HR21-200 and 1 for the H21-100
  • Remove 5 x BBC's (2 from the HR24-100, 2 from the HR21-200, and 1 from the H21-100) and 2 x extra coax connections to the HR24-100 and HR21-200 respectively (1 from the HR21-200 and 1 from the HR24-100)

Am I missing anything here? Also, with the CCK, what is the virtue of the Wireless CCK compared to the regular CCK? Thanks in advance!

  • 1 x H21-100 (1 coax connection with BSF)

Your "old Zinwell splitter" must be a switch, not a splitter.
There is absolutely no reason to have BSFs, so are you sure these aren't BBC, which you would need to have?

A SWiM LNB & power inserter, a 4-way splitter, 2 DECAs, and a CCK.
Then remove the BBCs.

You are indeed correct; I had the abbreviations mixed-up, definitely BBC's and not BSF's - thanks for pointing that out! :)

And yes, after looking at it again, it's not a splitter and is in fact a switch. Thanks for confirming my equipment needs, I appreciate it!

Oh and to confirm: do I absolutely need a SWiM LNB?

A normal CCK connects your coax DECA cloud to your ethernet, so a coax is routed to an ethernet location.

The wireless CCK connects your coax DECA wirelessly to your router. Either 2.4 Ghz or 5 Ghz band.

It can also be used a couple of other ways. It has an ethernet jack and a coax passthrough so it could also perform as a DECA to one of your boxes.

To use DECA [coax networking] SWiM is a MUST!

Your options are a SWiM LNB, or a SWM8.
The SWiM LNB only uses one coax from the dish and the splitter can be placed where the WB68 is.
The SWM8 would use all four coax from your dish and can be placed where the WB68 is now.

Are you doing this yourself? if so, I would first call DirecTV and make sure that they activate WHDVR service as "unsupported" before going and buying this equipment. DirecTV is being very reluctant to turn ON WHDVR on unsupported set up like this.
Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
