Its going to involve a swm 8 multi switch and a power 29 inserter

Going to be way easier running two lines unless we are talking hr-34/44

Which is swm only

Yes but in the settings you will have to do in this order

Go to satellite setup

Change switch settings from Sam

To multi switch

Select dish type 2 18x20

Set tuner from dual to single

What model "SWM DVR" do you have?  The HR34/44 DVRs can only be used with SWM setups.

Note that all of the conversation thus far is premature until you answer Peds question, what is the model number (inside card door) or your DVR?

You won't need any other equipment.  Simply connect two (it will operate on just one but you'll not be able to record and watch simultaneously) coax from the dish to the HR24, run satellite setup and set dish type to "Multiswitch" then dish model to 02 3LNB.  Note that the setting to Multiswitch must occur first and the dish must be attached to the DVR for the changes to "take".
