question about swm box direct tv installed in my basement.
hey guys im looking for help with a question i have about the swm box the directv installed in my basement. The power to swm port looks to be hooked to the main terabite dvr in the living room and the signal to ird port on the box has nothing connected to it. I have another hd dvr that i am not using is it possible to run the spare dvr off that signal to ird port?

Yes, the side that says "to SWM" is connected to the power side of the splitter. The other side is a live feed so it'll work as long as the receiver is SWM compatible.

okay so i ran a coaxil cable to the signal to ird port from my spare receiver and nothing is working. i have it set like my main receiver 04 slimeline-5 with option 01swm dual tuner because i have my white box with my ethernet cord hooked into main line in tuner one. Did i do something wrong? i thought it would be easy to do but i guess not.
Note* im not getting any signal strengths
Did you power up the box with the coax to the swm connected?
yes i did but its telling me that no swm could be detected
