just not in the PI backwards one.. that's been tested already :hurah::lol:
No, I wouldn't recommend that either lol I HAVE to ask now, lol, who did this?
With all the BBC talk, and the backwards PI connection, has anybody connected a BBC to a Hx2x receiver in conjunction with a SWM system? What happens? No, I don't want to know enough to risk it myself lol
As long as there are no restrictions I would like to order a SWM 8 and install it. I know there are many here who have them and would like to know a place to purchase one with out getting ripped off. Also I would like a complete kit, every dvr will have a home run so one big splitter at the SWM 8 would be good. Please let me know your thoughts. Also I will be using all 8 available tuners so in the future I may be looking to use my WB68 or add another SWM 8.
Not it. :lol:
A belated welcome to all you Round 2'ers...been a bit tied up recently
He's going to help them go a long way this year.
SolidSignal has them for $119.99 (includes PI)
It will tell you not to install them.
Thanks for the help. Will I be causing any trouble with Directv by switching myself? I also have another question I will PM.
ummm.yeah... HR21-100 forgot to disconnect it actually since it was on wall end of the jumper..
flaky tuner issues, sometimes worked sometimes did not. did not take me long to remove it:lol:
I am just north of Higgins lake. Right in between Roscommon and Grayling to be more precise.
I know that I have extra bbc's here also. Does anybody use them much anymore?
I was just thinking of a switch between the 2 boxes or the extra tv, not for sure yet? I do believe I have a 6x8 on the pole with the dish.Is that considered a multiswitch or SWiM??
That would probably be a WB68 multiswitch.
I have 2 Slimlines in my setup. One is a SWM3 LNB. The other is a non SWM with 2 6x8s
in parallel. So I can go either way. Would it be better if I went with the non SWM for the test?
They also have the SWiM approved splitters here. They come in 2 way, 4 way and 8 way.
Thanks, I looked around and Solid Signal seems to have a good price. I am not too confident about buying one on Ebay.
How long do I have to get all my stuff in place before the new receivers show up? Is it usually a week or couple of weeks? Not trying to pry, just prepare.
For people wanting to upgrade to a SWM8, ebay sometimes has decent prices on used ones. I bought one that was ADVERTISED as being new with power inserter for $78 shipped, but when it arrived (and was clearly used and not packaged in original boxes), I pointed it out to the seller and got a $20 credit. Should've just gone to SolidSignal to begin with, but what the heck - it works.
I've been using Skywalker splitters on my SWM for two years. There are others using them also. I highly recommend them.
