I brought my new SWM receiver up north for summer. Can I connect my older Non SWM 3LNB- 4out SL5 dish to the new SWM receiver?  and with just one cable?  Do I connect thru the new PL21R2-16 SWM power inserter? Having trouble finding a signal and wonder if it is due to incompatibilities or just aimed wrong. Thanks.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

Your question is confusing in one regard.  " Non SWM 3LNB- 4out SL5 dish" is a contradiction in terms.  SL5 refers to a SWM 5 LNB ( 5 LNB's, 3 "eyes") for HD.  The answer to your question depends on the model of your receiver.

We can't offer help for service outside of the US as it's a violation of the terms of service from DirecTV and therefore illegal.
