    I have DirecTV at my house and an HR54 with 2 wireless mini genies and a bridge. I dont see a swm.

    I disconnected it.

    My brother has an HR44 with 2 wireless mini genies and a bridge. He has a swim.

    When I simply swap out everything and even use the same cables, it says error 775

    What am I missing?

    The 54 has the SWM Power installed in it already.
    The key is that the coax from the 54 to the splitter must be hooked up to the Power Passing port on the splitter. It says that on the splitter and you can also tell by the fact that inside of the connection on the splitter it is RED.

    The splitter will have a red line from the input to one of the outputs. That's a power passing port.
