The question I have that no one has been able to answer yet is : Can the new Birdog 4.0 power an SWM lnb or does it (the LNB) need an external power supply apart from the Birdog 4.0. I have been out of the loop for a year now and going back to SUB-CON in march and I need to know what the best version of Birdog is for the new SWM applications . Thanks for any who can help.

According to this descripton.
Birdog 4.0 USB Plus
You need to use the power inserter for the SWM LNB.
To align the integrated SWM LNBs (SL5S or SL3S) with a Birdog meter, you must use a single port power passing splitter, rated at least 2mHz to 2150mHz, Connect the SWM power inserter to the power passing port of the splitter, connect the Birdog to the non-power passing port.

ok so i just got off the phone with the guys at perfect 10 and they are telling me that the 4.0 version will not power a swm lnb , but the NEWEST VERSION BIRDOG ULTRA will in fact power the swm lnb. I guess I have answered my own question. Thanks

I don't know what else I can say here. That link spelled it out fairly well. I personally have never used a meter.
