    If you have a SWM, which I'm assuming you do, then no the splitter will not hurt the HD signal. Does the splitter have a green sticker on it?

    Yes, I believe it does have a green sticker. There is one outside that connects cable 1 and 2, and one at the end of cable 1 with two cables going to two different receivers. I do have swm. However, when I get the Genie, I will have 9 tuners, so I assume he'll have to upgrade to swm 16, unless he talks me into a client to replace an H25. Can the client access the HR24 also?

    We would need to know what "splitter" you actually have. so a picture or model number will help greatly.

    If you have a Genie plus 1 HD DVR and 1 HD receiver, you'll only be at 8 tuners. A SWM16 wouldn't be neccessary. The splitter would need to be more than a 1in/2out though.

    I'm shooting for 1 HR24, 2 H25, and I HR34. That's what I ordered. I already have the HR24 and the two H25's. I guess I'll have to wait for the tech to determine what goes where, based on the wiring I already have.
