With that particular recvr, you can go either way ... SWM (and a PI) is the way I would go as its set up for future recvrs.Thank you for your response. I have one cable.
The story is this: My property was a hit by lightning and fried the old style receiver thus the H24 replacement. The old setup had the SL5 PIG-Z LNB and B-Band converter.
I replaced the RG6 and tried both the b band and H24 to no avail. Methinks I now need to get a new LNB.
SO: Must I use the same exact LNB ? What should or can I use? Can you tell I'm new to this?? Taking a crash course here!
With that particular recvr, you can go either way ... SWM (and a PI) is the way I would go as its set up for future recvrs.
Or you can use the other option without the PI and use the Slimline set up (one with 4 cables and a BBC )
Is this the ONLY recvr in the set up ?
There are multiple SWM LNBs out there, any of them will work ... so to answer the question, No.Yes, only one receiver and one TV as it is a summer home.
SO: Must I use the same exact LNB ? This is the part I don't understand. Since I have both the power inserter and the b band converter I should be covered right? My suspicion is the LNB is damaged and I must replace it.
Thats what most of us are here for ...Gentlemen,
This was quite a journey! The new LNB worked and a suspicious cable was replaced as well. Your help was greatly appreciated... I needed direction/confirmation/confidence to get it done.
Thank you so much!
