I have an extra h21 receiver after upgrading to genie. I want a dish to go camping and have no idea what one to buy. I would like to get my Detroit locals and have HD. I think I had a 3 or 5lnb before they upgraded to swim one. Do I need a B band thing? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Just put "tailgating" in the search bar. This item has been answered many, many times. This will be faster for you.

You will need a Slimline dish with either a 3 or 5 LNB.  The SWM version of these LNBs need a power inserter and no BBCs and a single cable to the receiver.  The "legacy" version (four output) does not require a power inserter buy requires two cable to the HDDVR and a pair of BBCs

Note that if you're camping more than a few hundred miles outside of Detroit you will no longer receive those local channels.

Since the TS has an H21 he only needs one line from the legacy LNB.


DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.
