    We can't know... since there's a swapped it implies you're not a new customer, and we don't know what other receivers (e.g., SD) or what kind of dish/lnb that you have. But it certainly seems like enough for the installer to get it right.

    Depending on what receiver/dvr combos you get/have (by model), you may need DECA adapters for each non HR24/H24 units you get, and you will also need a separate DECA adapter and Power Inserter for the Internet Connection to your router if you want VOD, Widgets, etc. They should be bringing an ICK (Internet Connection Kit) with them, make sure of that....because that is independent of what boxes they bring, and many installers forget it, or CSRs don't include it on the order unless you ask for it..

    I assume since it says internet connection that they'll bring one? Hope so :)

    I have an existing HDDVR HR21/200 which they are leaving alone.

    I have an existing SDDVR R-15 which is being swapped with new HDDVR.

    I have an existing SD receiver owned (Hughes) which is being upgraded to HD.

    My dish is a slimline with an SL3 I think.

    Does this help?

    The w/o doesn't have to include every little thing... the SWM conversion is implicit, so it looks like you're good to go.
