That's the way it's currently set up--4 HD DVRs connect to an 8-way splitter, from whose power port is the PI that is used in my LNB w/ SWM configuration. So, let me know if it's really this easy:
- I leave that present configuration alone--it remains the same: the 4 receivers connected to the splitter with the PI from the splitter. (The difference is that the coax to this splitter will now come from the SWM16 port 1 and not the dish's LNB w/ SWM.
- From the SWM16's port 2 will come a coax directly to the HR44 (no PI needed then for this receiver?).
Is the above correct?
That's fine, although you can go down to a 4-way splitter, if you want.
