    i am trying to use a small 18 dish and i`m trying to use a hr 24 that i was using on a slimline 3 says cannot detect signal but i have good numbers on the 101 sat.i can get it to go to downloading guide but it stops at 98%.i`m wondering if it has to do with direct tv phasing out sd.any ideas?

    You have good numbers for at least 26 transponders on 101? And you've gone into satellite setup and changed it to the 18" round dish and multiswitch?

    It almost seems as if the receiver is still stuck in SWM mode.

    If it was on SWM, it’s a pain sometimes to switch to multi switch.

    i don`t have 26 transponders i think that is part of the problem. the ones i get are all in mid to high 90`s.i went to satellite settings and changed to 18 round and never had it on swm to begin with

    Sounds like you are pointed at the wrong satellite. Which transponders are you showing with signal?
