    What is the difference, if any, between the blue and green label SWM SL3S4NR2-14?

    Green label is used for the ID of SWM and whole home compatible equipment. Not sure about the blue.

    Can you post a picture of the blue label? You sure it isn't green that faded after exposure to the elements?

    As I have said before, there is no such thing as a "blue" label SWM LNB, the blue label is due the green being faded by the weather

    Green label means that is made to work with DECA

    Thank you to everyone who replied to my question. I suspected the blue and the green were possibly the same due to them having the same number. However, I have seen photos posted online that shows that the label is a really noticeable bright blue as opposed to a sort of faded out kind of blue (as if it was weathered).

    Attached is a photo of my blue-ish label. The camera flash washed out the photo -so in reality the label is slightly darker than what is shown.

    A follow up question to the one reply posting -what is DECA?

    Keep a look out on your new LNB. in a few months will be just like the one you pictured

    DECA is DirecTV Ethernet Coaxial Adapter. DECA is a "cousin" of MoCA. MoCA is the Multimedia Over Coax Alliance, which basically is networking with coax cables instead of the usual ethernet cables.

    I ran across one of those exotic blue label lnb's on a service call today. Likely a new species, slightly weathered.

    Being color blind, they can look like just about any of those colors ;)
