I have done a bit of research and my head is spinning. Maybe I'm making this more difficult than it should be. This is what I have at home.
*Direct Tv at home - Receiver Model HR24 (HD with DVR). Slimline dish with the SWM LNB (green label model SL3S4NR2-01)
I can buy a used Slimline dish with the same SWM LNB for the RV for around $40-$80. Then some sites say I need a power adapter because the box will not power the LNB? I looked around my house and can see no sign on this 24v power supply. Do I need that or not?
My goal is to purchase a used slimline dish, plug it into the the HR24 receiver - align and have HD TV. Is it/can it be that easy?
