    Hi Stuart, the revised and updated third edition is incredibility informative, Thank You!
    I have one question/clarification to ask, at the bottom of page 6, under "POWERING A SWM MULTISWITCH OR LNB" it says "The PI-21 power inserter, which is black instead of grey, should no longer be used." Is there a technical reason for this or is there some other reason? I ask because I am currently using a PI-21 with a 3D2RBLNB (it's all the installer had available) and HR44/C51/HR24(x2) setup and am curious whether or not I should or need to upgrade the PI. I think it's the "... should no longer be used." part that's got me confused. Thank You.
    DIRECTV since April 2000.

    The PI21 may not supply enough current to the Digital SWM LNB depending on where it is placed. If your system is working fine, don’t worry... but if you are planning a new system you should choose the 29 volt power inserted instead,
