    I just installed a new 5lnb slimline dish with my H23 receiver from a different property. After some tweaking i awas able to get a signal on sat 101 94% It appears that i am not getting HD picture though.

    I bought a p-21 power inserter thinking i needed but told by directtv tech it was not needed.
    Only have i tv and receiver any suggestions to get hD picture

    If you have a SWM setup then you need a PI. If you don't have a SWM setup, you don't need the PI. In either case, be sure that you don't have a BBC connected to the H23.

    do you have a signal on any of the other sat locations? most of the hd programming comes from other sat locations. also are the hd channels producing an error code or are they not even showing in the guide? you can hide hd/sd channels in the guide options.

    HD is on 99 and 103, 101 is almost all SD. Since you have a 5LNB dish, you should have 80+ signals on 99-101-103-110-119 to get proper HD service.

    If this dish configuration is an any way different from your other configuration, you'll need to go through the guided setup on the H23 again.

    Does your dish LNB have one or four coax output connectors on it? If it has one, it's a SWM LNB and requires the power inserter.
