If you want to skip story go to bottom and read up. Every year my brothers and father head out to west Texas on the 26th of Dec to hunt. We stay till the morning hunt of the 31st and come back. Every year it’s a crapshoot on what bowl game we may or may not get to see when we are at the “bunk” house. (We love our football and this year we decided to bring a satellite system. We’ll set it up and leave it for future hunts. Then we’ll just bring the receiver with us. Last week I jumped on line and found a big slimline dish and stand and bought it. I've set up dishes before and figured I could do it again. The problem is I didn't know the dish didn't come with a lnb. Nor did I know there were so many types and kinds. Can some one tell me if and what kind of lnb I need? I'd like it to be HD type and maybe not have to supply power. Does the LNB decide what “system” you are on? I will have only 1 tv/receiver. I have a HR24-200 HD DVD that we will take back and forth with us. The dish is a SLSPF?? If that’s right. Sorry to be such a rook. I tried reading past threads, It just made me more confused. SWM8 and 16s multi switches, power inserter head spinning. Room turning….. it seemed like a good idea at the time. Any help would be great. Any poking fun is fine to I guess….
