    Not quite. The MRV Upgrade requires SWM. Order that, and you're guaranteed to have SWM and all SWM-compatable receivers and other components. However MRV works perfectly well with a decent home Ethernet network and no SWM.

    And if you had all of that you wouldn't call up to order it would you? You would call up and ask for mrv service to be activated.

    I think it's time for this thread to be locked and un stickied. Many of the facts now are incorrect and with the advent of MRV it also changes many of the issues.

    I ordered the MRV package for $99 + $45 installation, and after a few scheduling misteps by the local install group, mainly around difficulty getting trained installers and tghe required equipment, a week late they brought out a full SWM16, 2 expanders, full deca with broadband and installed everything in a couple of hours. A supervisor and trainer came out and spent a bit of extra time cleaning up the mess previous installers had left behind from a few upgrades. Everything works great.

    Yeah, I agree too. Let's start a new thread if necessary.
