it's normal for it to say that, it's just making sure you don't have them connected. You can click continue

did you bring the power inverter?

How did you hook it up?
If the SWM Power Inserter light goes off when you connect the satellite cables, then you likely have a bad coax connector or shorted cable.
The correct connection is:
Satellite dish LNB to "Power to SWM" connection on Power Inserter
Power Inserter "Signal to IRD" connection to Receiver's SWM1 INPUT

Yes you can replace it.
We travel with a SWM dish and Genie receiver and have set things up many, many times. The satellite setup menu has been changed and the option to select the Dish Type is grayed out and I cannot set it to what I have always used [ (17) Slimline-3S (SWM) ]. I have called DirecTV and no one can tell me how I can access the Dish Type to change it. The Switch Type should be 01:SWM but is now set to SWM LNB 8 CH. I have not been able to find the satellite signal (which is very unusual) and I have concluded that with the wrong settings is the problem. Can anyone help?
How can we improve?
