    In the 1st round, instructions were to put the splitter betwwen the PI and the receiver.

    The 2nd pacakge I got to replace the failed slimline says put the splitter between the Sat and the PI.

    What is the current thinking?

    My knees are better and the weather is better so I will put up the replacement slimline soon.

    I have them both places [working fine].
    I would say to put them where you need them [as I have done].

    I have SWMline > splitter > PI > HR21-100 (two other HR20-700's run from the splitter on straight runs on non power passing legs)

    I have the splitter before the PI, just like the round 2 instruction sheet said.... Up till now, I haven't been able to get it to work with the splitter after the PI....

    I've been using my weekends to troubleshoot as much as I can... I'll do some work on testing the cabling this weekend. I have two HR20s that work with the split after the PI, but I have one R16 which does not....
