Currently have an old 1-lnb dish. Want to upgrade to hd. I am confused about the differences between the 3lnb & 5lnb dishes. Is the 3-lnb capable of receiving hd programing? I understand that I need a slimline dish and of course the upgrade in subscription. Just confused about which satellites carry the signals.

All HD is on the 3 LNB dish (99/101/103). Some areas require the 5LNB for locals and international programming. If you state what market you are in, someone can tell you if the 3 LNB will work. If you have a clear line of site, going with the 5 LNB won't hurt anything.

The 3 LNB and the 5 LNB use the same Slimline dish pan the only thing changing is the LNB assembly. The 3 LNB and the 5 LNB and the SWM3 and 5 are just different LNB assemblies on the same dish. If D* is upgrading you they will install the correct equipment for your system.
