    Here is what is being added. Looks like it is the correct model number.

    Yep, that's one of the correct ones. With Reverse Band to boot. Good show ....

    Though I see on the actual production models DIRECTV placed a new sticker on it removing mention of the actual mfr. WNC.

    I'm waiting on the 5 LNB version myself, the WNC 5D2RBLNBR0-01 listed as "Slimline-5DR (DSWM2)" in the setup since I need 119W. But no news on it's release and no one on ebay can seem to get their hands on one yet.

    Okay its done. I only have 13 tuners active at the moment so I am not sure it worked 100%. I'll know more on that when I reactivate another owned receiver soon. The only thing that is weird is that I had to have them cancel the service call and do an upgrade. The upgrade was changed to a dish relocation just so they could get the SWM LNB swap on the order. Then apparently his depo got the LNB from another location that had not scanned it to his location yet so he is not able to complete the work order until the supervisor in Springfield gets back in Monday an transfers the equipment to the Joplin location. The only thing that seems odd is that when doing some kind of retest it was failing on 119 which it shouldnt see. He said he thought it was due to the system still showing I had a SWM5 LNB. Guess we'll see after they close out that work order next week.

    The only other thing I have noticed so far already is that HBO (501) seems to be running a little laggy. Only station I noticed it on so far. I will have to check it out on another receiver as well. If its just the one receiver that has the issue, I will just reboot it again and see what happens I guess. If what he was saying us true on the LNB I dont know why it wasnt failing on the 110 as well as the 119.

    If the System is showing a SWM5 LNB, you can go into the Repeat Satellite settings and it will discover the correct one automatically. Nothing they do with a workorder or remotely will change this But otherwise a LNB will not cause a channel to be laggy It should show this as the Dish Type "Slimline-3DR (DSWM2)

    What Compnurd Said! - Just Re-Run Sat Set - They Changed out a SWM5 LNB for a SWM3 LNB - SO the receiver is still showing 119 (it thinks) it still there -Happy Easter!

    Yes, unless you rerun sat setup the receiver will still think it's connected to a 5LNB. It will think the 101 signals are actually also from 110/119, so if there's one of those signals that "fails" the test it will say the 110/119 is failing. My guess is that all the 101 TPs that map to 110 are high enough to get a "pass" on 110.

    And since it's a 3D2, there's NO firmware update needed.

    There's so much wrong info floating around DirecTV on this. CSRs, techs, even the "office of the president" it seems. You'll find the info on here a lot more reliable.

    Just to clarify, this is after rerunning the setup and setting it for the correct LNB setup that 119 shows and fails.

    I'd rerun it again myself. And run that on all receivers in the home.

    I also don't think either the receivers or the AIM runs an IV or it's retest on a 5 LNB install for 110W anymore in the CONUS, AK, and HI. Only in PR.

    For instance all my 110W levels are at 0 nowadays out here on the west coast.

    Then Something is wrong. If it is set to that LNB the 119 will not show up for anything I would rerun and make sure it says the correct one.

    One quick question. Did they remove your swim 16 when they installed this LNB

    I'll check on it later. I did rerun the setup and he said he removed it and put in an 8 way splitter. Saw the box for the splitter but never saw the switch. If it was in place wouldn't I see errors for 110 & 119?

    If it is still detecting the 16 it may cause issues with seeing the LNB correctly but I am not 100% certain of that. I do know that if it was displaying the 3D2 correctly. You will not see 110 or 119 anymore. You do need to rerun the setup on all boxes

    I wouldn't worry about those errors. Have you looked at signal strength? Do you see 99cr and 103cr? If you do then you probably don't have signal strength screens for 110 or 119.

    Going to satellite setup showed the right settings so they were "auto detected" , but you have to "Continue" to verify them

    Rerun SetUp on all receivers and remember to "Continue" to Verify/Finalize....

    Did that earlier twice on all receivers. Same error. Guess I'll have to see if the SWM16 was removed but I have every reason to believe.

    If your LNB was switched then the SWM16 can't be in use. If you're still connected to the SWM16 you are still using a legacy LNB.

    I agree, it just isn't certain what that is. Either he still has a legacy LNB and is still using the SWM16, or he has the new reverse band LNB installed but the receivers are not wanting to 'forget' their old 5 LNB configuration.

    You might want to try disconnecting the coax from a receiver, then entering the settings menu and selecting the 3DR setting. Reconnect the coax after you have selected it but before you hit continue. The receivers try to be smart and figure out what LNB you have, but if they have no coax connection they can't do that so they will let you set them manually to whatever.
