One Slimline dish output to 2 HR20 tuners.

My current setup is Au9S Slimline with builtin 5X4 multiswitch (?) and an HR20-700. I have dedicated 2 of the dish outputs to the HR20 tuners but want to reclaim one of these cables for another use. Can I install a 21VDC Power Inserter (PI-21) and a SWS-2 wide band splitter to reduce my cables to the HR20 to just one?

In several places I have read the BCCs are completely removed from this configuration. Also in the D* SWM field operations training document implies that only ONE RG6 is connected to the HR20. If that's the case why do I need the SWS-2 splitter? Is the new software magically making the 2 tuners work off just one RG6 in SAT IN port 1?

The Solid State description of the SWM-8 says I need firmware .2042 in order to be SWM compatible; how do I do that?
Check the 'info screen' on your box. If your box is regularly connected to the sat it will have the latest national release which should be good.
