I'd still disable the swim8 and use a regular diplex to get the signal In instead of the swim8 over the air input myself. No need to run a 21 v power supply and add more heat or no reason and as Carl said you lose some signal that way.

But hey if it's all working perfect!!!! ;)

What I gather is the the OP has 4 DVRs (one being a Genie) and is using DECA for two of them (on the SWM16) and using the SWM plus OTA on the other two.  I wonder if dipexing "one side" of the SWM16 affects the "other side" that is using DECA

Here’s to the crazy ones.

The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

I think he's using the swim8 since it has the port for diplexing.

And no reason it should since diplexing is directional.
