I wonder if the firmware would actually be a problem, as the receivers include a choice of a DSWM LNB in the satellite setup menus since the most recent firmware update around New Year's. At least with regular SWM, I am able to choose a SWM LNB on receivers and they still work even though they're connected to a SWM16. For that matter, I have tried selecting the DSWM LNB and they worked fine, but there's no way to know if it is "really" selecting that or just letting me think it did
Of course, even if (BIG "if"!!) it does work, for the cost of having to buy your own equipment (not only the DSWM13, but also the special taps required for the loop thru) and doing your own install and supporting yourself forever, you could pay an installer to fish coax through the walls for a clean and fully supported install. There's never going to be scenario where trying to use the DSWM13 loop thru install makes any sense at all in a residential environment, even if could be made to work.
I'd be absolutely astonished if there is any new residential construction using loop thru wiring, so I highly doubt the TS is in that situation anyway.
