    I am curious, anyone know if the SWM-8 with a SL3 LNB works well?

    I am going to be doing an install for a friend and curious whether that combo is good to use and/or if there is anything special you have to do so the SWM-8 is not looking for 110/119?

    That's a good question...however....since the SL3 is a SWM-less dish....in theory...it should work just fine with the SWM8.....

    You just won't get readings on the other sats.

    I am using that setup without an issue at all.

    It only make sense that it would work, as its really the same LNB structure for 3 of the 5 sats on a slimline or sidecar version...so the SWM8 would compliment the use of that Dish fine. Glad to here you confirm it from actual experience.

    Always good to confirm though ;) , didnt know if there was some stupid issue or something when the 2 are paired (for example if it was looking for guide data or something).
