    1 unit is an hr20 and the other is an hr21, so I need to purchase both, the one I referenced and the one you did or just the unit you referenced, thank you and sorry for the confusion

    You need one of yours, and two of his.

    The one I referenced looks just like the one he did only with power supplies

    Notice that the one you referenced only has one coax connection. The one I listed goes inline on the DVR input (HR20, HR21) You need a total of 3 units as inkahauts described

    Read the white paper at solid signal that was mentioned earlier, I am gathering that from the picture, this is how the install goes

    also from a similar thread I believe this is what it should look like

    The photograph you posted is only if your HR20 is a -100. If it is anything else you hook it up like the top illustration in the Solid Signal drawing which is also how the HR21 hooks up.

    And then the deca with the power supply is what you use to inject internet into the entire system, and has to be on its own leg after a splitter, not inline with anything.

    the main splitter (1 to 4) is outside, so how would I hook up the power supply since themodem/router is inside near the receiver

    A two way splitter next to the receiver that’s next to the router. How exactly is your system wired? One line from dish to a 4 way splitter? Then from that directly to each receiver correct? And one of the ports on the splitter is terminated since its not in use?

    when connecting the splitter, do I connect before or after the swm power supply? before the power to SWM or after the signal to IRD?

    After the signal to IRD. Signal to IRD goes to the input to the splitter, one output to the receiver and the other output to the broadband DECA. Make sure you get RG6 patch cables for the ones you are adding.
