Directv pi-21 power inserter for swm lnb hookup, directv pi21r3-16 21v power inserter for swm lnbs sl3 sl5 ka/ku/green / newest!
Having a single line installed into the home and needing extra lines for multiple receivers or a DVR is one of the major problems.
The SWM can be as far as 40 feet away from the dish location. When my contract is up I am going back to Dish because their system is much safer.
The flex ports can be used with cable programming or an off air digital antennae signal. Another question about this. Any advice would be great, thanks!
I use this for my satellite that I take to our tailgate during football season and use swm power inserter hook up with the directv receiver I don't have the model number of the receiver, but it is a bedroom receiver, not the dvr, and i have the whole home dvr, not the Genie.
One such satellite dish that is also used to create the signal is the 5LNB.
The SWM makes it possible to combine an off-air antenna and cable service into the same line as the DirecTV signal, which is known as diplexing. It is important that the inputs are connected correctly so that the proper channels are shown and errors are reduced.
This option may be attractive to people who live in an area where they can get many additional channels that may not be available through DirecTV. Errors generally occur when the SWM connections are configured incorrectly.
