I currently have a HR22 and two older legacy boxes. I want to upgrade to the HR34 and keep the older legacy boxes.. I have the slimline-5 dish outside.. I'm just wondering what I should purchase besides the HR34, and a Swm16 with the splitter and power inserter. d
the older Legacy boxes will work with a SWM16 which the OP will need as he will be up to 9 tuners. http://manuals.solidsignal.com/SWM-16-Install-LR.pdf There are 4 Legacy outputs on the SWM16....per the specs The four "Legacy" ports are compatible with all older Receivers, however, each single tuner receiver using the "Legacy" port requires a cable running directly to the SWM-16 unit. DVRs using the "Legacy" ports require 2 cables coming back to the SWM-16 unit.
