    Need help: I just bought the new genie and was wondering what I need for installation. What dish do I need? Do I need a SWM multi switch and a power inserter? Thanks

    A SWM dish with either 3 or 5 LNBs will do fine. And you'll need a SWM power inserter.

    I think you need a US address too.

    Do you need a 21v power inserter or 29?
