    Not to Hijack the thread but are you guys saying that the old SWM 8 and 16 do not work with the HR54?

    No.

    The "legacy" (4-wire) LNB by itself will not work with HR44/54 or H25 (or I would assume HS17, either).

    If you're going to use that legacy LNB, then you need to have a SWiM switch. Otherwise use a newer SWiM LNB.
