Purchased and installed my own SWM8.
All hard wired (ie sig below )
I installed my SWMLine 5LNB ODU myself and realigned my dish when signals were low. Also rewired my house with RG6 and network Cat5.
This technology will be very, very helpful for me in two rooms I can't run more coax or ethernet too. (At least without spending lots of $$.) I'm looking forward to them!
It's all about you, huh....:lol::lol::lol:
I suspect many of us will realize the same rewards you described.
It's all about the Joe Six Packs who have some of the same problems we do.
Just call me Joe Six Pack II...:lol:
My master bath receiver needs this bad, it is the furthest point in my house away from the router and it is hooked up wireless right now.
I've got multiple receivers on 3 different floors of my home here - all wireless, so I feel your pain, as well as Tom's.
So what about modulation and the level. It can be used as a differentiator! When I look at my cable modem, I see an upstream frequency and a downstream frequency.
Cable is "easy" since there is the router at the other end.
SWM comm [2.3 MHz] is two way and on one frequency.
Maybe part of the handshake between STBs is which frequencies to use, but this gets into "tuners" in the dongle.
Until we get our hands on these we're
Adapter T, just keeps making more sense to me as to how to do this.
Thanks for making me even more anxious now...:lol::lol::lol:
Adapter T seems like it is the way to go.
"The problem is", this is the way I envisioned this from the start, so I'm locked into this and "the boys" may have tricks up their sleeves that I don't know about. :lol:
Same here, and it is hard telling what we will get
Honestly....I'm not clear on the whole Adapter T thingy....but no worries. I'll await the final reality of what they have in mind for setup.
"My version" of adapter T:
a device that mounts upstream of the first splitter, powered by the SWM PI. Receives one frequency and re-transmits it out another frequency.
This over comes the losses of trying to send a signal across two splitter outputs, can use lower power levels, and allows for send & receive to use fixed frequencies.
At one level, the switch might be the "Adapter T".
At one level, CSMA/CD, the original basis for ethernet (over coax, by the way) built most of the smarts into each adapter. So MoCA could just be advanced CSMA/CD at every point. The only "different" adapter is the one that bridges the coax to the "rest of the net", which is what the switch does. So why build extra functionality into a unique devices that duplicates the job of the switch?
Thanks for that additional information.
It absolutely helps put perspective, as well as substance, behind the drawings.
Ok, I getcha. You're still thinking about the isolation loss. Good point. It will be interesting to see how MoCA does that.
