    So I am curious how everyone is doing, so far I have had no issues at all with my SL3s setup and it has been rock solid!

    What about you?

    One minor glitch I reported before. On election Tuesday one of my DVR's lost the sat. connection and had to be power cycled.

    Other than that 1 issue, no other problems to report.

    I chose "SL3s - Having Issues" because my even numbered transponders on 99(c) and 103(c) were running 15-20 points lower than the odd numbered ones.

    My dish had been mounted on a wooden post about a hundred feet from my house because that was the only place that I had a clear line of sight to all of the satellites. This is the location that I originally installed the SL3-SWM last week. I have now mounted the dish on side of my house which gives me a much shorter cable run of about 25-30 feet.

    This has resolved my signal strength issues. I am now getting signals of 89-100 on 101, 86-93 on 103(c) and 87-95 on 99(c).

    As noted in the "SWMmingly" thread, things have been peachy for three weeks and counting at my place. LOVE the single-line/dual-tuner functionality and the flexibility for the future it gives me. NO problems at all on either of the three boxes connected to SWM ports, or the R15 connected to the Flex Ports. :up:

    More good news to report...

    Today the power company had to turn off our power to make a change to the power meter. I wasn't home - so my wife just let everything power back up normally when they turned the power back on. There was no making sure the PI was on first.

    I'm happy to report both of my DVR's came up fine and are working perfectly - no issues.

    I voted SWM8 - Working Great! because while I had an SWM related issue (read this to understand), I do not believe the issue was caused by the SWM, but rather by me or the HR20-700.
