Ah thanks for that key piece of advice. So the DPPSEP is not compatible with the SW44.There is your problem. The separator is only compatible with DPP LNB and switch. You need to update to DPP or run a second line from the SW44.
I cannot (easily) run a second line from the SW44 1) the primary reason is that the basement is now finished and 2) I believe I only have 4 lines that can run out of the SW44 with 1 running to the power inserter, 2 of them already running to my main floor 9400, leaving me just 1 for this basement 9400 install.
So that leaves me with updating to DPP. I'm being doing some googling & I am now trying to figure out how easiest to update to the DPP to so that I can use the DPP Separator in my basement 9400. My current LBNFs that are running from the same dish are 1) Dish Network Digital LNBF AK72-3VPE and 2) Dish Network Digital. Those 2 LNBFs are running to my current SW44. My question - can I just swap out my SW44 Switch with a DPP44 Switch and carry on with the DPP separator - OR - do I also need to update my LNB as well?
