    Can someone Identify this Slimline LNB for me? :confused:
    Is it a 5 LNB?
    Or 3?
    Also want to verify that this will work with a SWM8

    And it will work with a SWiM-8 module. I have that same model for instance feeding a SWiM-16.

    Since there are no markings on the outputs Can I assume that it does not matter which cable goes to which input on the SWM?

    Thanks Much! :D

    Don't connect any of the lines to the Flexports on the SWiM-8 of course.

    OK I have it mounted and "Aimed" all the SD channels are working well.
    I have attached pictures of the signal strengths I am getting across all the satellites.
    How do the signal levels look?

    I was a little concerned when following the instructions that after peaking and going two turns in one direction when you start to go the opposite direction the dish does not start to move immediately.
    I may be overthinking this but will there be some margin of error because of slack in the adjusting mechanisim? :confused:

    Good signals, no need to worry.

    I would check them other rainy day to see what is near an "edge".
