Okay, gents, here's the deal. My tech stopped by yesterday to do my pole mount (back on Monday to do the rest) for my new townhouse. The townhouses are brand new and my landlord is VERY picky about what we can do for this install. He prefers cable (single-line) because it is cleaner, but it can't even compare in terms of price to DirecTV around here. The townhouse is pre-wired as follows: A single line is in a box on the outside of the house, ready for service to be hooked to it. This single line runs into a junction box in my laundry room. In this box you have 5 wires - the one coming in from the outside, and 4 going out to the living room and 3 bedrooms. Right now, I will have an HR22 in the living room, and that's it. But I eventually plan on putting receivers in each of the bedrooms, too. So I realize a SWM may be overkill right now, but my landlord basically said no drilling holes. Besides, the installer wants to charge me all sorts of fees for doing anything other than just drilling a hole into the wall on the outside of the living room to get the second coax to the HR22. To me, this seems like a perfect case for a SWM with a 4-way splitter. However, the installer said (and I quote), "My boss told us he'd fire us if he caught any of us doing a SWM installation." So I called DirecTV and they are saying pretty much tough sh!t. They even said a SWM won't work in my application because you need a minimum of 5 tuners in the system and I am only using 2 (HR22). So first, can anyone confirm or refute this fact? Do I really need to have 5 tuners in the system? I'm 99% sure the answer is no, but I thought it best to ask. I just need to put 75-ohm terminators on all unused ports, right? Which brings me to my next question: Do I have to put the terminators on right there at the splitter, or can I hook up the cables that run to each room and put the terminator on at the wall plate in each room? Anything else I need to remember when doing the install? I am going to get the SWMLine LNB and a PI-21 Power Inserter and a 4-way splitter that is compatible with the SWM - anything else I need (besides terminators)? Any other things I need to consider here? Thanks in advance!
