Just swapped out my 6 x 8 switch with a SWM8 switch, have 4 RG6 lines coming from dish, plus 1 RG6 from the 95* orbit slot. Using a 1 x 4 splitter connecting 1 H20-600, 1 H21-200, 1 H20-100, 1 HR21-100(DVR) and a R15. I installed the HR21-100, the H20-100 and R15 with no problems. The HR21-100 and H20-100 both have SWM satellite signal strength screens. The H21-200 and H20-600 DO NOT have a SWM satellite signal strength screen. Shouldn't I have a SWM satellite screen? The H21-200 is working, it has been installed for 6 days. Is this a problem, no SWM satellite?

I'd agree, don't worry. My H20-600 shows the SWM-8 firmware in the systems information but does not show a SWM satellite screen. It works and that's good enough for me.
