The weak link in current HRs are their HDDs. So look for another storage method.

 

Like what?  And when?

 

It's going to be years before SSD price and capacity are competitive.  And it's going to be awhile before they can handle constant writes with a similar life expectancy.

 

Although I do believe disk will be dead and gone within the next decade...

Rich, check out 'When one Swim isn't enough. . .  http://www.dbstalk.c...im-isnt-enough/

 

I ordered the splitters from SolidSignal  and a bunch of 18" RG-6 jumpers from Monoprice.  Very easy install.  Just be sure of the splitter orientation on the load side the swims. (NAS 9501 diplexers) . . http://www.dbstalk.c...im-isnt-enough/

 

I don't let installers touch my stuff.  They can do the roof/dish stuff.

 

I know how to do it, just would rather let D* do it.  The main problem I have is that the two SWM16s are about 60' apart.  I've already got the four "traveler" coax cables in place from one to the other.  All it is now is a matter of bringing my one 16 into the garage rather than being on the outside wall.  I figure I'll also get both SWMs replaced and get a new LNB and realignment.  

 

Rich

I doubt they'll do the load side diplexers to combine the swims for MRV. . .

Yeah ...

 

And I doubt most techs. even know such a thing can be done for combining MRV with diplexers.

Unless they read the thread (or SS board) that I referenced.
