I just upgraded my rxr to a HD-DVR (HR23NC-700) and the old 18" dish to a Slimline with SL3K4R0-02 LNB (4 cable out).

I ran a second line in for the DVR dual rxr requirements but would like to add two more rxr's for the kids bedrooms without running two more cables all the way in from the dish. I have a Perfect Vision PVMS-4EP (3 in 4 out) multi switch but I loose the HD channels so it must not be compatible with the Slimline.

Can I get a newer multi switch or is the SL3 LNB a multiswitch itself and won't work with an additional multi switch?

What m-switch with work with this newer LNB?

Can I get 4 or 5 outputs from just two cables in from the dish?

Zinwell WB68 ?

That multiswitch won't work for the Ka satellites. A WB68 fed with all 4 cables from the dish will meet your requirements.


Do I absolutely have to use all four cables to get 2 or 3 more outputs?

Have a brick house and ran the cables underground in conduit from the unattached garage, not sure I can get 2 more fished through.

You could switch to a SWM type dish that uses one cable, but for the dish you have you need all four cables to the multiswitch.

OP - so you basically have 2 choices then:

- Change the LNB in your slimline to SL3 SWM; you would then only need one cable into the house. The slimline LNB's are all interchangeable, so it's easy to swap. You'll also need a PI21 power supply to run the SWM LNB, as well as the appropriate SWM splitter. (a 4-way, I would assume) I would probably go this route, as this is probably the cheaper route.

- Add an SWM8 external switch to your existing slimline LNB; it also requires a power inserter, which should come with it. You can put it out right at the dish, & it also has 2 SWM outputs. DO be aware though, you can still only use a max of 8 tuners, regardless of how you split up the outputs.
