Yep. Cheap and they work great. I have six of them in my setup.
Where's the link? :lol:
Hello everyone.... It's great to be here!
If you use a SWM LNB can you expand? If you need (or want) more than 8 tuners do you need to go with SWM8? Just trying to make the right choice.
No, not expandable. What you'd need to do is replace the LNB with the non-SWiM version and then use the exteranal SWiM's,either two SWiM8's, but you won't be able to use DECA between the two. Or wait for the SWiM16 to come out which will support DECA on all 16 tuners.
Unfortunately not. I would love to but it’s not in the cards. I still have my old LNB. I’m considering putting it back on the dish and expanding my SWM.
So if I stay with my standard lnb, get the SWM 8 and in the future use my WB68, but do not use a Deca can I still keep my MRV via ethernet?
This sounds like what I want until SWM16, if I need more than that I gonna get another hobby.:lol:
Sitting by the door in a tent waiting for the FedEx guy.....
You shouldn't have any issues keeping everything on the Ethernet connections.
Cool, thank you guys for all of the help.
Don't tell me we're already back to that !!! (waaaay too early)....but since you brought it up and all...
This is the one that delivered Smiddy's last unit....
Pure awesomeness! :lol:
Smiddy has dish? :nono2::nono::nono2::nono::lol:
You won't have any problems. Those of us in the "Group 3" of the first round (who got H24 and HR24's to test) each got a single DECA module. For the Field Test, the H24 and HR24 are installed on the same splitter off one of my SWM8's. The DECA module is connected between the HR24 and my router to provide a bridge to the rest of my ethernet-connected boxes. I can serve HD from the HR24 to any of my other boxes, while also getting an HD feed to both the H24 and HR24 from other boxes. So that's 3 HD feeds going through a single DECA module (one outbound and two inbound) without any issues at all.
I also think at least one person got a defective box here early on that would not connect via DECA at all; by ethernet it worked like a charm. So assuming your ethernet LAN is good, MRV should be great no matter how you connect to it.
And while they delivery guy was distracted....lol "Where did all those HR24s I had in the back of the truck go?" "No, you can't look inside my house." lol
I have had my HR24 connected by both ethernet and DECA. Currently it is on DECA as are 3 other DVRs. I have one DVR and a non-DVR receiver on ethernet. All work MRV to/from each other just fine.
Second on the Skywalker splitters.
My system is split: half is a Zinwell multiswitch, half is SWM.
Hoping the SWM16 comes forth soon so I don't to hook up tandem SWM8's.
Does anybody know if the HR24 will support (At least hardware wise) PIP? I don't watch Live Tv, so really couldn't care less, but I know a lot of people want it.
Not that I'll be using DECA immediately, but does anybody know if the SWM LNB will require that DECA dongle thing, or is it already built in?
