I have the slimline-5 dish outside.. I'm just wondering what I should purchase besides the HR34, and a Swm16 with the splitter and power inserter.

You'll need to buy or make cables to connect the SWM to the SL5, unless you're replacing a multiswitch with the SWM.

There is no multiswitch currently..

also just curious here but why do you not want to keep the hddvr but want to keep the older legacy receivers?

Just checked and they are the D12 boxes.

But if you get the HR34 from DirecTV, they'll insist on an installer coming out, and the install price will include the SWM-8, I'm pretty sure.
