A SWM8 has eight channels for programing and one common channel for guide info. Add to this a 2.3 MHz comm signal.fo71 said:Hi... I looked at other threads and although they do mention SWM signal strentgh, they don´t mention what exactly what those numbers mean, so...
My question is, after installing an 8 channel SWM switch, my receivers now show "SWM" along with 101, 103's, 99's, 110 and 119 as if it was a sith satellite. It show signal strentgh transponders 1 thru 9. Does someone know what do this reading mean? What is being tested? Perhaps the communication between the receiver and the switch?
The nine are what is being used from the SWM. Zeros will be there when not all the channels have a receiver using them.
If you lose your SAT feeds to the SWM, these SWM channels will also show zero too.
