DirecTV SWM and power Inserter ?
Does the power inserter actually power the Dish or does it power the multiswitch. When I hooked everything up in my Camper it was working fine at first then I had to reset breaker later that evening because of an overload using my PA Equipment outside playing music, and the receivers started saying no SWM Detected. The Equipment Im using is a SWM - 8 coming out of the dish with 2 outputs used, one on a straight wire into the camper into the tv in the back bunk room which is run in beside my slide, the second wire runs into my satellite input on the side of my camper which runs into the Entertainment center in the living area. At the entertainment center location it has another sat port going to the bedroom so I put another swm 2 in there so that I could split the incoming line to both the box in the living area and other in the front bedroom area. I have the 21volt power inserter and all the power pass on the SWM are wired directly. At first everything was working but not it is not. I even tried swapping the SWM 8 out to another swm 2 switch and still cannot detect swm!
