I currently have the AU9-S Dish with a 4 cable out 5-LNB (installed back in 2008). The four cables go into a Zinwell 6x8 (I think). I used to have four DVR's, now I am down to the two, (1 HR22 and 1 HR21). HR21 is starting to act up, and when it goes, I want to replace it with the HR44.
So, correct me if I am wrong or point me to a diagram. But, I would need a replacement SWiM compatible 5-LNB (with one cable out). Connecting to the one out would be a SWS-8 splitter (if I go ahead with the HR44), or just a SWS-4 if I use the two HR2x series. Each receiver would get one cable out of that splitter, (BBCs would be removed), and the splitter would receive a power inserter to the red port.
Now my current switch is mounted in the attic. Is that where I would mount the splitter, and could I use one of my original rg6 cables from my Living Room receiver to provide power to the splitter? Or should the power run be less than the ~25 Foot of one of those cables? Also, does the splitter need to be grounded?
This is what I was looking at purchasing, is that all I would need?
Thanks for clarifying. The SWiM tech still has me in a little bit of confusion.
