    I ordered an HR24-200 and au9-sl3-swm from solid signal. Have been trying to point and setup for a few hours. I have dish mounted on tripod and set to specs from satellite screen on my home system. It is also an SL3. Coming from the dish is a single coax and hooked directly to port 1 on receiver. The LNB only has one output. I am unable to get the dish to communicate with the receiver. Do I need a pi? And what do I set the dish type as in the first screen? Thanks.

    It's an swm dish so needs a power inserter. Once you have everything connected it will automatically set the correct dish type.

    YES - You have a SWM LNB - as it only has one output - so you will need a PI-21 or PI-29 for it to see the sat

    Okay thanks. So I will put the pi inline between the dish and receiver. Do I still use the 1 port marked swm on the input?

    PI has 2 out puts one marked with power to swm (LNB) the other marked STB- (RECEIVER). SWM Splitter Power to lnb (RED) port (single top port) to LNB.

    Got all the parts in (pi) and it’s all working. Thanks for the help. Having some issue finding 99 and 103 but 101 is strong 99%. Seeing as how I will be moving the dish and repointing each time I move my Rv I’m not worried about it. Thanks for all the help.

    When you get a strong signal on the 101, try adjusting the elevation for 99 and 103.
