I have an MRV appointment setup in a couple weeks and want to make sure everything is going to work ok. I attached a picture of my current setup. (The H23 is currently unplugged but is wired) I decided to keep an HR22 (was suppose to replace by HR24) at least for the time being. By keeping it it put me over 8 tuners and now I'm at 9. I called DTV to ask about upgrading to SWM16 system. Of course they can't order anything in specific. I then asked about MRV since I wanted to get that as well and the rep said I might be better off going that route since they *should* give me everything I need to get everything connected during MRV install. So as of right now I have an appointment just for MRV install at which time I'm hoping they will upgrade my system so it can handle more than 8 tuners since they would have to in order to get everything connected. I'm certainly not holding my breath. Now the 2 way splitter is actually located on the outside of the house. Reason being so I can have an extra jack hooked up downstairs. My concern is having splitters on MRV. I don't need this extra jack hooked up, it's nice to have but I would rather have better performance than an extra jack I only use every now and then. The PI & 8-way is located inside the house in the basement. There is 1 cable that runs from the basement to the outside junction. The 8-way feeds the rest of the house. Would it be possible to upgrade to a SWM16 with my setup? My concern is there is only 1 cable running from the outside of the house to the inside where the drop is. Running more cables from the outside junction to the drop inside the house is not a very good option. So if this is needed I will have to set one of the DVR's to 1 tuner. What kind of LNB is used on a SWM16 system? My current LNB is a SL3-SWM so I don't have any switches inside the house since it's built in to the LNB. I don't know to much about SWM16 if these are just separate switches or built into the LNB. I also want to feed internet to the IRD's. My router is located in a bedroom next to the HR24. So I would need to add a splitter there, one for the HR24 and one for the router. That being said would I have to dump my 1st two way splitter in in order for everything to work correctly? I'm just trying to figure out if a SWM16 will work with my setup and if it won't work should I just dump the 1st 2 way splitter since I would be adding another splitter next to the HR24. Either way I would like to get MRV, it would be nice to have all 9 tuners hooked up but I can certainly live with 8 if it would be too complicated to get a SWM16.
