    Hi There, 1st post in the Forum, but have been reading for many years. I want to confirm information that I believe to be true from reading this forum and other research.

    I want to replace my older HR24 with my HR44 and install an HR54 that I have on hand where the HR44 was.

    It is my understanding that the HR54 will power the SWM as well as put internet onto the coax.

    I understand that if I power the SWM with the HR54 I need to move the coax on the splitter for power.

    This will allow me to remove the SWM power inserter and the Connected Home Adapter from my system.

    I should be left with only the external Wireless Video Bridge for connection to the Genie Mini.

    Comments, Suggestions, Corrections. Am I making sense in explaining my goal?

    Thanks in advance.

    This is not allowed. No 44 and 54 on same system. Same with the HS17.
    All are considered Genies and only 1 per system.

    Is a 24 not a Genie then. I have a 24 and 44 currently

    Then maybe I'll leave the 24 in place and swap in the HR54. Then are my previous assertions correct?

    You can do that but I would keep the PI and use it. If you only have the HR54 powering it and something happens with the 54 you will lose service on all receivers.

    No a 24 is not a Genie.
