Can someone tell me if the following Genie whole home setup will work?  Thanks!

4 SCC RG6 cables from dish to SWM16 = 50 feet; 2 SCC RG6 cables to 4-way splitters = 50 feet; one CCS RG6 cable from splitter to Genie = 50 feet; one CCS RG6 cable to 2-tuner DVR = 100'; 1 CCS cable from Genie to wired Genie mini = 150 feet; 2 Genie wireless minis.  Thanks!  (I have a lot of concrete in this building and I need to minimize the number of cables between the SWM 16 and the splitters...)

    Why do you need the SWM16?  The Genie has 5 tuners and the HD DVR has 2.  The Minis use the tuners in the Genie so a standard SWM dish with a single feed to the Genie where you can install a single 4 way.  I'll let others comment on the distances involved.

      I want the SWM 16 because I expect to add more 2-tuner DVRs later (or I can add them now if that will allow me to get the SWM 16).  I am primarily concerned with the distances and cable types per the previous post:  4

      SCC RG6 cables from dish to SWM16 = 50 feet; 2 SCC RG6 cables to 4-way

      splitters = 50 feet; one cable from splitter to Genie = 50 feet; one cable to

      2-tuner DVR = 100'; 1 cable from Genie to wired Genie mini = 100 feet; 2 Genie

      wireless minis.  If anyone can tell me if this will work I'd really appreciate it!

    The SWM16 has 2 ports each has an 8 tuner limit and 150' is about the max for RG6 unless you use RG11 and the wireless minis need a WVB that is connected to the SWM system with coax and has a max range of 80' that is reduced by walls and other things that may block the signal. There is a three minis in use at a time limit and anyone watching live TV will reduce the number of tuners for recording.

      Thank you ALL very much for your help!  Now I can do my wiring before I call DirecTV without drilling more holes in my 12" concrete floor.  I really appreciate it!
