Both the 3 and 5 LNB (single output) SWiM LNBs has the SWiM multi-switch integrated into the LNB housing itself as opposed to the previous (4 output) legacy ones that had to use an external SWiM switch for single wire installs.widmark said:I have not installed Directv yet. Looking to make sure I install only the latest and greatest.
What does the Directv New SWM 5LNB offer over the previous, and if this is the most current technology, how do I make sure thats what I get from Directv when I order? ...
And when it comes to the dish at least, its safe to say DIRECTV will always use the latest in technology they have to offer.
Short of the HR34 HMC the HR24 and H25 is the most current, and you should receive those for a new installation, but there are no guarantees. You get what's on the technicians' truck... Planning on using with a whole house dvr set up and 3 hd receivers. So it looks like the most current tech is HR24 and H24 for these, respectively.
Actually given what the HR34 was intended for, one central home server feeding multiple tuner-less STB clients, some argue the HR34's 5 tuners are under-kill . And I'd say the HR34 is as fast as the HR24, just its software not as mature yet with some quirky bugs.... Sounded like the HR34 was overkill and navigation not as snappy as HR24.
With that level of pre-wiring, it certainly should, though for WH installs, the cat 6 network will not be used. Only the RG-6 coax runs via DECA signaling.... I have a house wired with a cat 6 network, and RG6 home runs to each receiver, so this has to be a pretty easy install.
One time charge of $150.00 for the nomad unit. No monthly fee, self-install.... Also would like a nomad... how much are these to add on, both in terms of upfront and ongoing cost?
Thanks in advance.
