    I moved to the Houston area (zip 77571) and the installer only installed one LNB on the dish. When he did the install he used the 3 LNB instead of the 5 LNB.

    Is this correct? I see other dishes in the area that has different LNB setup. I believe I am getting everything, but want to make sure.

    If your SD locals come from 101 [ what DMA are you in ?] and you don't subscribe to spanish/chinese programming you are good.
    The other dishes were probably installed before the availability of the 3LNB.

    We are fulltime RV'ers currently in Hitchcock 35 miles south of Houston and have the Slimline SL3-SWM dish and get everything we should. We get all the Houston locals as they are tied to our permanent address in Livingston, Texas.
