Yeah - some times when they process the order the system your account is inaccurately flagged as having SWIM and allows the agent to ship the equipment vs. installing the equipment.

With over 8 tuners in your home, he'll install a SWiM-16.

You probably won't need a new dish.  All HDDVR's models HR20 and up work.  If I remember correctly you have an HR24 which is SWIM compatible, as an added bonus all 24 models have built in DECA's which means you won't need a DECA hanging off the back to get the connected home features.
