We now know whose technology DirecTV adopted to make the SWM possible, but I noticed something interesting while I was reading the article.

Entropic's core CSS technology supports up to 12 tuners and enables the simultaneous reception of multiple channels from multiple satellites over a single wire.
So the question is, will we be seeing a SWM12 in the future?

The 12 tuner note is interesting
Hmmmm, I'm confused :confused:. From what I understood, this is not the same company that developed the 5 and 8 channel SWM that we currently use.

Did they change names?

you just got it in:) ....I thought I saw something about 1 card for 4 boxes?
I don't remember seeing that, Hmmm...

There would have to be some sort of network connectivity between the receivers over the SWM for that to happen. I think I remember something about network connectivity related to the SWM but I cannot precisely remember what it was.

Another interesting find on Entropic's homepage.

It's cool that they let you see the guts of the units.

Folks, nothing is impossible, but the current SWM8 is as big as it's going to get for a while.

"Entropic's c.LINK home networking technology is a full-mesh, peer-to-peer network. It overcomes the inherent limitations of home coax cabling and enables high-speed "horizontal" communications between the outlets in cable home, providing room-to-room connectivity."

"Entropic's c.LINK home networking technology has been selected as the basis for the MoCA standard for home networking over coax after a selection process that involved an extensive and successful field trial conducted by MoCA. The field trial demonstrated that our home networking technology repeatedly achieved a very reliable net throughput in excess of 110 Mbps at acceptable packet error rate levels to support in-home video distribution at quality levels suitable for server provider-based pay-TV deployments. This net throughput allows for the simultaneous delivery of four full-rate HDTV channels and other services, such as voice and data."

more dreaming ...

Yep, remember that very well. I'm still thinking there was some truth to that ... :)
And quite possibly a bit more light shines onto "why" no diplexing. :)

There must have been an SWM11 on the initial plans, I made a note this was the SWM frequency allocation:
Channel # - Frequency in MHz
1 - 974
2 - 1076
3 - 1178
4 - 1280
5 - 1382
6 - 1484
7 - 1586
8 - 1688
9 - 1790
10 -1893
11 -1995
12 - 2097

SWM11, as posted, would need 11 channels for tuners plus one for the guide data.
But DirecTV obviously decided not to move ahead with the SWM11.
