    I'm getting no signal on my even transponders, and I'm pretty sure it's a bum LNB. Anyone know a place in LA I could just buy and pick one up so I don't have to order online or wait for a service appt?

    I believe it's a Sl3, but I'd need to climb up to check. I guess I assumed there would be some satellite supply stores somewhere that I could just bring it into and buy a new one.

    The following assumes you have an HD dish and service.

    Check to see how many plastic housings / eyes it has. If it has 3 it would be a Slimline 5. If it has just 1 it would be the Slimline 3.
    Then also check to see if it has 4 coax cables coming from it. If it has just 1 it is SWM technology. If it has 4 it is mostly called the Legacy technology.

    Not necessarily. The lnb could have four outputs, but only one being used.

    correct. One should not go by cables, but rather by the actual outputs on the LNB itself.
