Anyone see the cost of SWM coming down? I would love to add it but in all honestly, when they provide it for free on certain installs, i really dont want to pay more then 50 for it

I think it will be a while before the SWM8 gets down to 50$. I think the SWMlnb is a little cheaper and might make it there for just the LNB. Currently the new installs with it are still pretty limited.

This may be due to more SWMline LNBs, "falling off the truck" of the installers.

Sorry, a little off topic, but certainly related. If I remember correctly from all the SWM posts, the SMW can not be used with a AU-9 dish, only Slimlines. Is that correct?

The AU9 IS a slimline, you probably mean the AT-9. But the SWM will work with an AT-9 5-lnb dish, even a 3-lnb dish and if you wanted to it should work with a round dish also. As far as the dish is concerned, the SWM8 is just another multiswitch.

SWM8 will work with most Directv dishes..
SWMline LNB will only work on a slimline dish assy..
