    I had a question as I plan to convert from standard LNB to SWIM. The reason being is that when it turns to hot season each year, certain times of day, I have some of the HD channels go out, so I suspect it could be LNB/Heat related.

    Am I correct that one end of the Power Inverter goes all the way to the LNB?

    The second end of Power Invert can either go directly to a satellite receiver (if you only have one, is that correct)?

    Or if you have more than one satellite receiver, you can use a SWiM splitter (2 way or 4 way or 8 way but the less splits the better).

    Is this correct?

    And if you only want one receiver hooked up, you don't need the splitter? Thanks.

    "yes" to all your questions with the only caveat that the PI can be routed through a splitter

    How long is really long? I need to connect a receiver that is roughly 30 meters from the swim. No go?

    Over 60 meters would be in the range of "really long"
