Hi all,

I am looking to replace my old 5lnb dish with a new slimline swm compatible dish. Since I hate to do the Directv roulette, does anyone know of a knowledgeable and high quality Saint Louis Installer that I can use?

Thanks

What message comes to the screen ?

I believe you are on SWM already since you have 6 tuners and the old style LNB will only handle 4 tuners unless a multiswitch of some sort is added.
Pressing the dash button would confirm this either way.

I am not on SWM already... I have a multiswitch.

Hopefully someone knows of a good Saint Louis installer.
