That isn't an issue, just requires a SWM 16. Both scenarios will work, or even no genie client.
I would replace the H24 with the Genie and keep all of your HDDVRs
Thanks for the replies. It's good to know I can keep my other DVR's. I think that is what I will do.
I do have a question about the SWM 16. I presently have the SWM 8 with two ports still open. I have 5 recivers and one room has two different lines running to it but only one is ever in use in that room. Why would I need the SWM 16? It seems if I replaced one of the H24's with a Genie I would still only be using 6 of the 8 available ports? Or does the Genie need more than two coax cables running to it? Presently all of my receivers only have one coax cable running to it?
