Hi all,

In the midst of cleaning out some closets and rooms turned into closets, I've come across my original non-SWM 5-LNB, and pair of B-band converters. I can't think of a reason to keep them around any longer, and some quick checking of eBay looks like theyd be close-to-worthless. Aside from the obvious answer of "just in case your current LNB craps out", is there any reason to not trash it? Does any supplier still buy these back, or any place to get rid of these other than the trash? Thanks!

Poeple often will be looking for a bbc or LNBs, not everyone has a SWM set up or want a SWM set up.

I would post it in the classifieds onn the site and see if anyone wants them .... or you can trash them.

When people add receivers and the number of tuners exceed 8, a non-swm lnb will be required. The lnb will have to be connected to an external swm 16 switch.
