Need help: I just bought the new genie and was wondering what I need for installation. What dish do I need? Do I need a SWM multi switch and a power inserter? Thanks

A SWM dish with either 3 or 5 LNBs will do fine. And you'll need a SWM power inserter.
HD DVRs: HR34-700; HR24-500; (2) HR20-700 + WD eSATA 1TB drive/Antec MX1 case; HR21-700; HR21-200 w/AM21

SWM LNB = 21v. SWM switch = 29v power inserter
