Can a PI-29 work fine with a swm LNB without using a swm8 or swm16 in the setup? Obviously the PI-21 would be the preferred choice but if they're not available (out of stock in garage) would a PI-29 be a suitable replacement?

Sure, it will work but no guarantees on how long.

The SWM LNB can use either.
They are both compatible.
So yes the PI29 will work just fine.

As noted, a PI29 can always be used in a swm setup, a PI21 only with a swm lnb. Just to be clear to Kungfu Panda, a swm lnb is never used with a swm8 or swm16.

Thanks! That much I pretty much knew but thanks for clarifying just in case anyone else stumbles across this.
