    Please excuse this pretty dumb question, I have a line of sight problem and I would like to know if I can install one of the "new" eagle aspen SL3-p LNB on an existing slimline 5lnb dish, run just one line to one H20 receiver without the need for additional equipment, (I.E., power inserter, switch, splitters, diplexer, etc.), also if I use a hr20 instead of a h20 as my only receiver what addt. do I need., I know I will not get locals due to them being on 119.

    It would work fine with the H20 without adding anything. To use the HR20 you would have to run one more RG6 or use a SWM 8 with it's power inserter and the one run you already have. It would be much cheaper to run one more RG6 to the HR20 unless that run would be a very large pain in the you know what.

    Thanks, That's what I'll do, just run another cable to the other tuner if that will work.
