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 AU9S is the part for the swmline dish but it only has one output on the dish so something doesn't add up there. Do you currently have BBCs hooked up?

If you actually have the SWM dish you only need 1 cable going into the input 1 with no BBC to get full functionality from the receiver with both tuners functioning. I'm not sure thats actually what you currently have tho.
