Without the use of SWM(single wire multiswitch) you will need two wires to a single DVR.cssamerican said:My house is wired with one RG-6 cable run to each room. And I can have an unlimited number of wires coming into a central location in the attic it is currently 3 input lines.
What I want:
I would like to have an HD DVR in the living room with the ability to watch a program while I record another off the sat signal.
I just want to watch HD sat signal in one other room now and possibly two or three other rooms in the future.
What do I need? Can it be done the way my house is wired? If not what do I need to do? Is one provider better suited to this than the other?
You probably won't be able to get SWM from Directv with only two tuners(one DVR). Purchasing one can be done here:
IMHO, it's best to run the second wire to the location you want the DVR.
