    On the outside of my house i have a WB68. I have got a SL3S4NR2-14 that i can put on the dish. I have a hd/dvr receiver and a swim power inserter. How would I hook up the wb68 with only the one wire coming from the dish? and is there anything else i would need to do? Any response would be greatly appreciated.

    What is the model number of your receiver ?

    With that LNB and just the one receiver you should not need the WB68.
    That LNB will handle 8 "Tuners" with the one coax. Coax from LNB to ground block, Coax from ground block to Power Inserter, Coax from Power Inserter to receiver.
    Align the dish,

    Done.

    I have 4 sd receivers and 1 HR21. The dish that is on the house now has 4 cables coming down. which one do I hook to the WB68? And do I insert the inverter behind the hd box only?

    OK, that is totally different than the original post.
    The SD receivers will not work with the SWM LNB that you were going to put up there unless they are all D12 models. The WB68 works with the SD receivers and the LNB with the 4 coax cables.
    There is a hookup diagram here.

    Sorry if I sound like an idiot. This is waht is going. My parents have moved but are still using their account at this address. I moved in and brought my DVR and 4 SD receivers. Everything worked great at my house but when I put my boxes in here, I don't get HD or my Dvr service. Directv says my dad will have to cancel his account (which he won't). I found a LNB that has just the one port. My parents have an LNB that has 4. Do I need to change that or do I need to change the WB68? Again I am sorry. I looked in the manual and didn't see how I should hook up the single LNB. I was told that the Directv installer didnt change anything from when my brother had his account here 6 months ago but don't understand why my HD/DVR won't work like it did before. Your response is greatly appreciated.

    If your dish says Slimline, then you only need to obtain and add two b-band converters to your HR21 in order to get HD.
