True but only if a receiver comes along with it.


Yes. But the OP is looking to get a new receiver (Genie) which will put him up to 9 tuners.

The big question is whether the installer is willing to install the SWM-16 at the dish, so the OP can continue to utilize his underground dual coax from the dish to the house or will the installer insist on mounting the SWM-16 at or in the house, which will require 2 additional coax cables, which the OP would need to bury himself (which he has stated that he doesn't want to do).

The installer gave me a choice to have the SWM-16 at the dish or on the house. I think all the OP has to do is ask.
