    Does anyone have a swm wiring diagram ?
    I have a slimline dish with a single wire lnd and the required multi-switch, power supply and splitters. I just need to to know how to hook up 3 HD receivers to this set up.

    Thanks in advance...

    There are several ways but basic is LNB to splitter red power passing port to red port on power inserter white port on power inserter to receiver.
    Other two receivers hook directly splitter.

    but he says multiswitch....which I take that as the switch if you have old receivers too
    doesnt that require more than one line from the LNB?

    Yeah but it also takes a legacy LNB and gets a bit more complicated.



    And since he said he has 3 HD receivers which unless they are pre 20 series they are all SWM compatible and a swm LNB I just eliminated that part because if he really does have a SWM multiswitch he won't need it.

    Hi All
    I have been using "Field Operations Training April 2008 Version 2.1". I dont remember where I got it but it has everything you would ever want to know about SWM.
    I hope someone can tell you where to find it as it is a Directv document.
