    Default Splitter SWM 4 Way

    My son moved and his new place already has a newer (installed last year) Directv dish and a "Splitter SWM 4 Way" (MSPLIT4R1-03) connected to the four outlets in the townhouse. The prior tenant had a genie system connected, but my son moved his current equipment HR-21/200's and hooked them up expecting them to work, but they don't. I checked and the "Splitter SWM 4 Way" doesn't have a power inserter so I thought that was the problem, but I brought mine over and connected and he still isn't getting a signal.

    My question is does he need to replace the "Splitter SWM 4 Way" with a different SWM for the HR-21's to work?

    He probably just needs to reconfigure the HR21s to look for a SWM signal instead of the older signal. Try pressing the red reset button on each.

    Thanks for quick response. We did reset them, but still no signal. Does the "Splitter SWM 4 Way" require a power inserter when used with the HR21's? Anything else we should try?

    Well, that splitter requires you to be attached to a SWM dish or independent SWM switch, both of which do require a power inserter, yes.

    Yes, that did it. Thanks for your help!
