    I've got two HR2X devices, and just added (reactivated) an H20. With an AU9S Slimline dish, what's the best wiring setup? I just can't remember where everything stands right now, can I split them at any point without recourse, or do I need a different appliance (SWM or the like)?

    Thanks for any help!

    Do you have SWM or legacy now?

    With an AU9S (the S standing for SWiM) you can add a SWiM labeled splitter at any point in either of the HR2x's runs. The only thing that IS of consequence is maintaining the power passing path from the power inserter to the ODU. This is only a concern if the line that you're splitting has the power inserter on it. If so, you'll need to make sure that the power passing leg of the splitter (it's labeled) is connected to the line with the power inserter, the original existing line going to that HR2x.
