Do older receivers (H-20) still need B Band converters?

    I just sold my old H-20 HD receiver (the guy is on his way to pick it up as I type). I have the B Band converter, but I was wondering if it's still needed.

    The guy had never heard of it before. Hopefully someone will respond to this before he gets here. More out of curiosity than anything else.

    Unless it's on a swm system, yes it needs the b band converter. All do except the 23 series.

    Exactly, just ask the buyer if it has a SWM system, if they do, they don't need the BBC, if they don't, they will need one.
