    Would it be possible to put some or all of the images posted by Doug, VOS and others somewhere for future reference? They are good sources of information but this thread is getting to long it is going to hard to find them in the future.

    I called DirecTV on Thursday & this was the first available install. I never call the local companies -- just prefer to go with D* directly. I'll let y'all know how it goes. At least the rain is letting up.

    Is that stop band filter necessary in all configurations or only if you have an HR20-100? And, if you have a 20-100 it is sufficient to put the SBF before all the splitters or does it need to be closer to the 20-100?

    I think I'll wait a while and get the install moved to a different date. Give the boys in Staten Island a chance to figure out how to do this.

    I think I could do it with VOS's diagram, if that equipment is weather resistant, but I'll wait awhile.

    I believe that installers are required to use them at the SWM (unless it has a green label) and for all receivers without DECA, in addition to the special HR20-100 case. You can't place it ahead of a splitter or the DECA signal will be blocked.

    In many cases, everything will work without a bandstop filter, but officially they are required to use them to avoid possible issues. The filter will prevent the DECA signal from overloading either the SWM or the receiver.

    The Bandstop filter for the SWM only needs to be between the first splitter [input] and the SWM.
    Bandstop filters for receivers need to be at the receiver.

    Putting a bandstop filter in before the splitter means the DECA gets blocked to the other legs of the splitter. :nono:

    I have two HR21's (100/700) and one HR20-700. I currently have my SWiM PI located near one of my receivers (HR21). Will the SBF prevent me from using my current setup? In other words, does the SWiM-8 PI have to go between the SWiM-8 and the SBF?

    NO. My PI is 90' from my SWM and the bandstop is 60' from the SWM.

    Excellent idea. Maybe a "Working Install Diagrams" thread.

    In the mean time, right click on the picture and save it on your computer. I have done this in the past for reference.

    The install is done. Everything works but he could not get the regular MRV menu to come up -- it is still the Beta. So he opted into the Beta again & I see that MRV works. He redownloaded the latest software in an attempt to get the regular MRV but that didn't work. I think I read on here something about reauthorizing the receivers online? If I need to do that, where do I do it & should I opt out of the Beta first?

    You can authorize your receivers here. Not sure about opting out of beta first, doubt it matters.

    So it doesnt matter if the bsf is before the swm pi or after? It just needs to be before any splitter correct? Thanks.

    That just takes me to the main home page. Where do I go from there? It has to be under My Account somewhere, I would think.

    Sorry, that is my bookmark, but it must be specific to my account. I bookmarked it because I had trouble finding it once. Someone else should be able to help.

    Go first to the Help menu, then select Tools. You'll see a graphic for "refresh your receiver."

    This is a long thread and it may have been answered before but why is a not-yet-available Broadband DECA specifed for the network connection when a regular DECA seems to be an acceptable substitute?
