    I called DTV to add the Spanish package. The channels wouldn't come up and after spending a lot of time with the CSR, she said I needed a dish upgrade. I now have a Genie with a Slimline 3S (SWM).
    Can anyone verify this for me.

    I believe you need a 5 LNB.

    Yes, you need a 5-LNB Slimline dish to receive the spanish channels beamed from the 119ºW satellite. DirecTV should provide that upgrade when you subscribe to the spanish packages.

    Thanks to a couple of Hall of Famers for the info. DTV is supplying the upgrade free of charge. It took the CSR and her supervisor quite a long time to figure this out.
