The new SWM-8 allows installers to run an AT9 or AU9 DirecTV satellite antenna plus 2 Flex ports (72.5 & 95) down a single RG6 Coaxial cable! At the end of the single wire a SWS-2, SWS-4, or SWS-8 splitter is required (not included) to distribute the signal to as many as 4 DVRs or 8 HD receivers! Please Note the SWS series of splitters are specially designed for the SWM-8; you must have an SWS-2, SWS-4, or SWS-8.

The SWM Port Single Wire Solution is ONLY compatible with the H20, HR20 (Firmware .2042), H21, and HR21.

The three "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-8 unit. DVRs using the "Legacy" ports require 2 cables coming back to the SWM-8 unit.
