you don't need SWM, but to get all the hd channels you need a slimline dish. slimline dish does not always have SWM built it.
for example, until yesterday, I ran the 4 wires out of my au9s dish to a multiswitch and to 3 dvr's. for just 1 dvr you do not need the switch.

you can run 2 wires out of an au9s dish into your hr22 (using the BBC's included) and you are all set.

Two coax feeds from the dish and "you're set". SWM just makes it easier since it only needs one cable.
Thanks!!
I see that there are 4 outputs from the dish. Any 2 can make it? And this 2 should be connected one to the satellite in 1, and the other to satellite in 2? Without bbc converter?
Thaks again

any 2 will work, yes to sat 1 and sat 2, but you DO need the bbc's if you have an HD package.
