Default Connected to SWiM

When I hit the dash (-) button on my remote, I get a little message with my receiver number and it says connected to SWiM. What exactly does that mean? I know SWM is suppose to let you have dual tuners with only one line, but I still need to have the second line in to be able to get the functionality of dual tuners. Any ideas out there. BTW, I have an HR20 and HR21.

It has to do with connecting your DVR to On Demand.

Nothing to do with on demand. It is supposed to tell you if your receiver is connected to an SWM but there is a bug in the software and you get the connected message even if you have a non-SWM setup. Just ignore it for the moment.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong but I believe a SWiM setup allows you to only have one line in to your DVR yet you can still record two shows at once.
