I just found an H25 receiver cheap and i have a SL3 slimline dish (SL3S4NR2-03) and was wondering if it would work. i have heard rumors it will not. I have also been told I would just need to put a SWM power-inserter in and would be ok.

Thanks for your help

The H25 does require a SWM set up, so you'll need the Power Inserter and SWM splitter if using more than 1 recvr.

The SL3 should work if it has the SWM LNB

Yep that'll work. You will need a PI (21v) to power the dish. Just throw the PI in-between the sat and rcvr and enjoy.

What does the last half of that designate ?

SL3S**, or in the OP's case SL3S4NR2-03
Does the last part mean anything particular ?

When you put that number into a search at a ordering site (SS) the result comes up with nothing.
If you search for SL3 you get the dish.

Just asking.

If you aren't getting the H25 from a vendor, call Directv and confirm with the receiver identification number that it's owned and not leased. If someone else got it as a lease, you won't be able to activate it.

Thanks Chip, I meant to mention that and forgot.

I figured that. You are usually all over this kind of post. Don't worry buddy, I've got your back!

I have yet to see the H25's for sale outright, I would think it's a lease.

Well, he hasn't answered back that he's gotten anything yet, hope he lets us know .... :)

He may end up being one of those "one and done" posters. I hope not.
