    I apologize if I am posting to the wrong forum, but I have a question that somebody could help me.

    I have an old HR21 that needs to be upgraded. I was able to get a used HR24 , however for some reason when I swapped them out ,, the HR24 shows signal but its showing red X's on the on odd and even transponders. The old HR21 has 2 cables coming down from the satellite and plugging with the KU band convertors on each end into the coax connectors. The satellite is setup as SL5 LNB with multiswitch and dual tuners and its works this way.

    Now I have a newer HR24 receiver with dual tuners and the exact setting is not there but i am assuming its the slimline 5lnb dish setting I tried other dish menus as well - and actually the signal on satellite 101 is showing up but nothing else. What I am doing wrong ? --No not using SWM not sure if I need this now.

    You need to post this question over at the DirecTV forums. This is the DISH Network forum.

    Or you could switch from Directv to DISH seeing subconsciously you must like DISH better.
