This is the SWM SL3S Kit. It converts your Slimline non (SWM) Dish to the New (SWM) Dish Technology from DIRECTV. This Kit is designed with an integrated single wire multiswitch (SWM) which allows you to have multiple satellites feeds at Once. This DIRECTV LNB Kit has 1 output for the new Slimline SWM dish from DIRECTV and all necessary components to convert your Slimline dish into a SWM Slimline dish (single wire multiswitch). This LNB is lighter and better looking. The Slimline encompasses three LNBs to receive 101°, 110°, 119° degree satellite, plus the new Ka satellite (99°, 103°) for local HD MPEG4 programming.
Relatively easy install, fewer wires
First of all, the dish arrived in the most amazingly well-packed way I’ve ever received any item via shipping. It took a while to get out out of the packaging, but I’m pretty sure the UPS truck could have run it over and done no damage to the parts inside.
Directv three slim line dish combo
Directv technicians refused to install our dish on our floating home due to the obvious movement issues. Our dish arrived in perfect condition and we installed it on a piling. We used our receiver to aim our dish and soon had our system up and running. We learned that with this dish and hd dvr setup you need to use all the parts included to zero in on the southern satellite. Also, the cheap satellite finder is a superfluous piece of equipment we didn’t take out of the box. Once we figured out the general direction of Texas, we were good to go. The receiver did all the work and is now working perfectly.
Easy to install and aim. Great signal.
Roofers damaged my old dish. This was a great replacement and has a smaller LNB than my old one, but still pick up all the North American content I want. Easy to aim with fine adjustment screws. Self installed using the HR-24 as a signal meter with a phone. Got great signal, in the 90%s. Luckily it mounted on my old post just fine.
Great dish and simple to set up!
Dish arrived on time and in perfect condition. It is a SWM and comes with the power supply for it. The dish doesn’t come with instructions, but a quick google search led me to a pdf file which made it simple. I used SatFinder Lite on my iPhone and quickly got the general area to point the dish without a compass or any other equipment. A few minutes later with some minor adjustments I had it perfectly aligned.
Exactly what I needed
Arrived quick and packaged well. Exactly as discribed. Setup was easy. Once base is level just set elevation and skew and point in the right direction. Used dishpointer pro app for smartphone to check direction and good line of sight. Rough tuned alignment with cheap satellite finder purchased years ago at radio shack even though most techs say they wont work with SWiM. They still work just fine to center on 101 and given your skew is correct 99 and 103 should be close. Turned on the box and had great signal with the first try. It will be nice to have HD channels when camping in my RV.
The right model at the right price.
Replaced one after the old one was damaged over the winter at my cottage.
Go product from an excellent Seller
Purchased this unit as the newest hardware for direct Tv using the single line in method. Product was exactly as litsted with good pictures. The best part of this was the actual seller who responds to any questions that you have after the sell which made this a excellent choice. If this is the unit you are looking for, then this is the place to make the purchase.
Easy to install
Easy to install, I had to buy the swim switch separately, appears to be identical to Direct TV dish. You will need to you tube the directions for lining it up to the satellite, Not a big deal.
