A few years ago I purchased a dish heater for my 5 lnb slimline dish. The dish heater is stuck on the rear of the dish and cannot be removed. I am considering getting an HR34 which requires swm. Does anyone know if just the lnb can be replaced to upgrade the dish to swm?

The LNB can be replaced with a SWM version or an external SWM8 or SWM16 can be used.
