    I ordered a new DVR through the DTV website and they shipped an HR21. (thanks ppffff) Anyway, doesn't this require B-Band converters? I don't have a SWM dish, only the Slim. They did not send the converters in the box. I am assuming I do need them as I have an old HR20 that requires them. If I do need them why didn't they send them in the box?

    Yes, you need BBCs for an HR-21. That's what I have.

    If you call them they will send them to you for free.

    I don't know why they don't send them unless they think they have enough SWM systems out there that they would be sending out parts not needed and increase their overall costs.
