I have a question as to how my directv setup is currently wired. I currently have a genie and 2 HD-DVRs for a total of 9 tuners. I remember the tech getting a little frustrated when he installed the genie and after doing a whole bunch of reading I see that the swm lnb has a limit of 8. From my understanding, for a 9 tuner setup, I would need a standard lnb with 4 wires going to a swm 16 or using a splitter 4 wires each going to 2 swm 8s. When I look outside, here's my setup (I will post pics later). I have 2 cables coming down from the satellite, each going to its own 8 way switch (not sure if these are swms or not, they look just like a regular 1-8 switch). On one of the 8 way switch is one cable which goes to my genie, which is also where the power inserter and cinema kit are installed on the receiver side. The other 8 way switch has 2 cables coming out, one for each of my other 2 receivers. I don't understand what type of setup this is. I have whole home viewing working and on demand works as well, but both of these have been flaky in the past. My understanding is for deca to work it has to be on the same "switch." is this why I am having some stability problems? My plan was to move all my receivers to one switch and disable one tuner on my receiver upstairs. Would this work and increase my deca stability? This would mean I have a swm lnb since I have just one cable going into the 8 way splitter, but that 2nd one is throwing me off. I could not find a setup to match that. As a side, is it possible to disable one tuner of the 5 on the genie? I will try to post pics later today.
