    Need to upgrade to a swm16 for more receivers and my swm8 is the LNb style so when I replace the LNb to a slm3 do I need to realign the dish? Everything seem good on my signal levels right now so don't want to change anything if I don't have to

    If its a SWiMLNB, then you will need 4 cables from the new LNB to the SWM16.
