The coax line from my slimline 3lnb dish runs thru my addic into a 4 output splitter. If i ever wanted to just hook the dish line directly into a one receiver (say an hr34) the line wouldnt be long enough to reach as it ends like i said at the splitter in the addic. Could i use a coupler and attach it to the line fished down my living room wall that is currently attached to one of the outputs of the splitter or are couplers a no-no with SWM?

If you only have the one receiver, as long as you terminate the unused ports on the splitter, you shouldn't have a signal loss that would affect the quality of your signal. Is there a reason you want to remove the splitter?

Well b/c i only have 2 of the terminators for the splitter. The installer used two outputs left on the terminators to the other two outputs but didnt leave me the unused terminators to put on. Wuld this work:

But again just in case can a coupler be used on a SWM line?
If you don't need a splitter, then don't use one.
If you need a termination, go to Lowes, Home depot or radioshack as there's nothing special about them.
