|Direct TV SWM 8
Mike: Signal I have got DirecTV´s single wire multi switch. This
switch has got a lot of cool features. I am going to tell you all about
Mike: In a standard DirecTV installation, you have to run four
lines into the building from the dish. With this single wire, multi
switch you run those four cables into these four parts here. Next you
just run a single cable out of the swim output into the building you can
then take that single cable and split it up eight times using special
DirecTV approved satellite splitters.
One of the other unique features of the single wire multi switch is that
you can integrate a roof top antenna into it. There is a port label off
air, this is where you can run your antenna into. It then distributes
that off air signal through each of the eight outputs but the diplexers
will be required at the receiver end. The single wire multi switch
requires a 29 full power supply. You can either hook this up straight to
the switch with label swim1/power or you can insert it down the line
even after you split the signal. That’s why there is a red port on each
of these splitters so you know you run to the power supply and then to
your receiver. For those of you who are using DVRs you normally have to
run two wires to that receiver. The single wire multi switch eliminates
that you only have to run one line to the DVR and then split the line
right before the receiver. This multi switch is only compatible with
DirecTV´s AU9 SL3 and SL5 satellite dishes. To use the single wire
functionality of the switch you must have a compatible DirecTV receiver
listed here. If your receiver is not on that list you can use the three
ports to your labeled legacy. You have to run these lines directly to
each receiver and they can be split like a swim port. If you have any
other question you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our
