Solid Signal Single-Wire Multiswitch technology allows DIRECTV receivers and DVRs to connect using a single wire. One wire can be split to add a second receiver line without going back to the multiswitch. Convert an older dish to SWiM technology without re-aiming. This multiswitch allows for 8 tuners. DIRECTV DVRs use 2 tuners each. HR34 DVR uses 5 tuners. Contains a 29volt power inserter for use with SWM-8 or SWM-16 adapters. It can be run from the power passing port of a splitter or, on the SWM-16 can be run from the separate PWR port. Terminate all unused connections. Also included is the correct splitter to use for DIRECTV whole-home service. Use only "green label" splitters. This splitter also has one power passing port labeled in red.

  • The Winegard SWM-840 SWM-8 Switch Kit allows the use of DIRECTV SWM-only technology receivers with non-SWM Winegard mobile satellite TV antennas. The SWM-840 Kit includes: SWM-8 switch, power inserter, 4-way splitter, and mounting hardware. Note that Model SK-SWM3 SWM TRAV'LER antenna (Coast 80828) operates with DIRECTV SWM technology without separate accessories.



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.
