Solid Signal is an Authorized Dealer of DIRECTV products.
This multiswitch allows for distribution of up to 16 coax outputs, all through two coax cables using SWM technology. What used to be a mass rewiring, can now be accomplished through two simple coax cables. Traditionally satellite needs DIRECTV lines from dish to the receiver. Each of the two outputs has the capacity to be split up to eight times once inside the building.

Key features
  • Single wire technology allows for less cabling and less holes in the wall
  • For use with DIRECTV SL3 & SL5 satellite dishes (does NOT work with SWM dishes)
  • This system can support up to 16 DIRECTV satellite tuners, or 8 DVRS
  • Also provides four legacy outputs for older non-SWM equipment
  • Turns a standard SL5 or SL3 dish into a DIRECTV SWM system
  • Works well with SWM splitters only (Not included)
  • This product requires the SWM PI-29 29v Power Inserter (Not included)

  • When used with DECA adapters, will provide network access to all compatible receivers, unlike having two SWM8s, which will only pass network to half the receivers

  • Provides two outputs to serve two customer dwellings (typical)

Works perfectly as expected.

The SWM16 gets a feed from the 4-output LNB units (not the ones with the built-in SWM module) and converts that to two SWM8 segments. Internally, there';s a DECA bridge so receivers can talk to others on the opposite SWM8 segment.
