Setting Up Receiver for Lakehouse

1247 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Dale in PA
I have been gradually upgrading my system with the most recent receiver change-outs being the replacement of a H21 with a H24 and an HR20 with the HR34. With the HR34 change Directv installed a SWM16 in my attic. So, I am getting ready to make a trip to the lakehouse and I usually take one of my H21's with me. I just realized that this H21 is SWM connected and my setup at the lakehouse is old triple LNB dish. A couple of questions: 1) What is going to happen when I hook up the H21 configured for SWM to the triple LNB dish?; and 2) Can I pre-configure the H21 non-SWM configuration by attaching it to a Legacy port on the SWM16? Thanks in advance for all of the great advice on this forum.

Receivers sometimes are difficult to switch back and forth between legacy and SWM. Yes, you can use one of the legacy ports off your SWM16 to switch it over. Hook it up, go into sat setup and select the type of dish you have at the lake, plus "multiswitch". You may have to do a reset on the receiver.

When you bring it back, reverse the process. Make sure you know what type of dish you have at home also (3 or 5 LNB).
