HD Picture Quality

I recently switched to a swm module (with power invertor) and the Genie network.  The HD picture quality is not as good as the old setup without the swm. Any suggestions to improve this condition?

Puzzling.  There's no technical reason why a SWM setup should have any effect on your video quality.  Tell us more about how your HDTV is connected to the DirecTV Receiver/DVR?  What model Receiver/DVR?  Do you have other HD Receivers/DVRs that you could swap with?  What channel(s)?

Is it possible you have the Genie's guide set to SD channels only?

Hi peds48 - I'm not the OP, but how do I know what the correct dish is so I can check settings to see if the wrong dish was selected during satellite set up? Just curious. Thanks!
