well the Genie arrived today. it did just what you said it would. 776 errors. I disconnected receivers to get the 8 tuners I wanted working to be connected for now. tech will be here Friday. only thing I cant figure out is internet on the HR34. does it have it built in or does it need those things on the back. I hope it doesn't cause it barely fits in the cabinet as is. things massive.
Is it possible for me to have a SWM 4. I think that's what its says but then I have 2 splitters on it. that gets me to 8. I could be wrong but I know I am picking up 8 tuners. rest are just getting errors. the SWM is tiny and has 4 cables running on one side and then one on the other.
There is no SWiM4. You have a SWiM8. Attached is a basic diagram of a SWiM8 setup.
That’s why you’re only getting 8 tuners. If you put the HR2x DVRs into single tuner mode until the tech gets there. This way no matter what happens the HR34 will boot with 5 tuners and you won’t get any errors...that could also be, say the HR24 with two tuners and an HR22 in single tuner mode.
You can put an HR2x in single tuner mode by running the Satellite Setup.
When the tech gets there (s)he’ll install the SWiM16 and you’ll be running with all the tuners you want.
Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth. That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.
