Bill,
Could you explain a bit about SWM, not sure I understand that. I assume it is not needed with the 18" round antenna in my trailer.

SWM stands for Single Wire Multiswitch. It is a new technology that DTV uses to send multiple channels down a single wire (coax). The H25 and higher model DTV receivers REQUIRE this technology to work while the older ones can utilize it but do not require it. No single LNB antenna (18" round, dome, whatever) offers the SWM technology but the addition of the SWM8 switch and a PI29 (not PI25) power inserter will make an 18" round or many domes work with the H25 and higher receivers.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?
