I think you have to have a signal for the SWM to show up.
Set the Screen of the TV to show the 101 sat and get that to the mid to high 90s. Then tweak it for the 99c and 103ca and 103cb sats.

The dish choice is number 17 in the list. SLIMELINE - 3S(SWM)

Unplug the Power Inserter ( PI ) and see if you get a message on the screen that says it has a problem communicating with the dish.
If you do, unplug the H21 and wait for a minute. Plug in the Power Inserter ( PI ).
Now plug in the H21 and see if you get a signal and if it chooses the Slimline 3 dish.
Please verify that your LNB on the dish only has a connection for 1 coax and not 4 of them.

A single coax connection shows it is a SWiMLNB.
My LNB only has one output. Should one of my options for satellite say SWM or is the slimline 3 the same thing?
If things were working, it would tell the receiver it is a SWiM and you wouldn't get the choices you have for the dish.
Either the LNB is defective, the PI is, or the receiver, if it isn't your wiring.

I don't believe the H21 needs a software update as it came out when SWiM was already released. The H/HR20 need the update.
its only 2 new wires, can't see where it could be that. Does the h21 have some sort of software update that it needs to work with swm? Maybe that is why it isn't working?
