Has anyone any experience diplexing a backfeed through SWM.
Salt Lake City
You have to be a bit more specific. What are you trying to send through the SWM? Cable? Antenna? Security camera? We have customers who have done it all...
I have 4 satellite receivers (non direcTV), 2 DVD-R's, 1 DirecTV receiver and a couple of other odds and ends feeds going through 9 modulators diplexed into two SWM8's and back out at every box, works excellent. Can't wait till I can afford one of the new ZeeVee boxes and add an HD channel through that too!
I'am connecting a DTV antenna to the SWM8.
DIRECTV swears SWM not available
When I moved, they said the product was coming September 2008 (now I feel they just told me that so I wouldn't cancel), not they are telling me it's not available in my market and there are no plans for providing it in the future. I've been with DIRECTV for 10 years, and when I moved I got stuck with a new contract. As soon as it's over, I'm probably going to leave.
Unless, I can do this myself. I have 2 lines running to 2 receivers, but I have one additional receiver that only has 1 line running to it. It is the DIRECTV DVR R10. This the only receiver need 2 lines run to it or where I need to split the signal. Does anyone have any ideas???

Unfortunately, the R10 can't use a SWM signal at all, so you'll always need two lines to it.
SWM8 - R15-100 model DVR
Can the R15-100 use the SWM? I have that one in the living room. I could move it to the bedroom since we have 2 lines running in there.
Nope - R16 or newer, for standard def DVRs.
Ok, I see. DirecTV says one of the benefits I get as a loyal customer are free DVR upgrades. I may have to call them on that. I'll twitter them and see what I can get.
