DIRECTV Slimline Single Wire 5 Satellite LNB (SL5-SWM)
- Brand: DIRECTV
- P\N: SL5-SWM
An easy swap out!
I purchased this product because my Winegard Trav'ler antenna had only a single LNB and was not capable of receiving DirecTV's sat 119. I needed the SL5-SWM LNB array to get that Sat. The techs at DirecTV suggested I contact Solid Signal. I did so and confirmed that this device could upgrade my Trav'ler antenna. I installed it easily on the existing arm with common hand tools after removing the single LNB. I made one more call to Winegard tech to reprogram the Trav'ler controller so that it knew the new LNB configuration. (The Wingard tech was initially skeptical that this would work but he came to realize that to the existing reflector and LNB arm did not have to change.) Once DirecTV techs understood that I had a SWM system, they reprogrammed my DVR and I now have local channels here in AZ.
This is an excellent product and is clearly marked with DirecTV's logo and labels. Installation is easy and uncomplicated. My existing power inserter was compatible with this new LNB.
