Newbie and SWM setup help

Hi, I am new to the SWM talk. I bought an HR 34 online and just found out yesterday that I can't connect my receiver without a SWM 16 multiswitch. I will have the HR 34 and 2 HR 22's in my house. My question is about wiring from the multiswitch to the actual receivers. I have been reading these threads like crazy trying to figure it out but was hoping for some clarification to see if I am correct.

Will I need to have one cable coming out of the SWM 1 on the multiswitch that goes to the power inserter and then from the power inserter to the HR 34?

Then one cable out of the SWM 2 on the multiswitch to a splitter that will use one cable that goes to the SAT 1 input on each of the HR 22 receivers? The SAT 2 input will have nothing connected to it? So there would only be 3 actual cables (1 to each receiver) that I will be using instead of the normal 6 (2 going to each receiver).

Thanks nike. I have learned a lot reading all the threads on here.

I currently have the wireless connection kit hooked up to my hr22. I am assuming I can keep that hooked up to the 34? I wasn't planning on having the two hr 22s hooked up to the internet but what would I need for those receivers if I wanted to hook them up to it?
yes, that is the one I have. So run a coax to the kit instead of an ethernet cable from the kit to the receiver? Then 2 deca receivers for the HR-22's?
does this require the whole house deal or is this just to access the on demand channels for each receiver?
thanks David. Im from Merced, small world. Does it matter how I hook up the wireless connection kit? (ethernet cable from kit to receiver or coax cable to kit) I have an extra coax now that only one cable goes to the receiver.
good to know about the CCK. So if I keep the CCK behind the HR-22 I wouldn't need a white deca receiver for it right? Just one deca for my other HR-22 and the HR-34 doesn't need anything does it?
A band stop filter on the HR-22 connected to the CCK or the HR-22 connected to the deca receiver?
oh ok I think I got it. The HR-22 connected to the CCK needs a band stop filter. The other HR-22 needs a deca receiver. The HR-34 needs nothing.
