    Is there a mechanical or electrical difference between these two LNB-s

    SL3 pig-z and SL3 pig wnc.

    Can you replace a pig-wnc with a pigz,,, without changing anything else ?

    I looked up those models on the web and from what I can tell they are the same. The -z and the wnc is probably the manufacturer just like the numbers after your receiver model is the manufacturer.

    ok,, cool,, thanks,,,,,,,,,,,,, geez,,, there is also a SL3 pig-P,,, and then this model,,,, SL3K4NR0-02,,,,,,

    If I understand all this correctly,,,, if you use a SWiM model LNB, it requires a power supply and splitter for multiple receivers, correct ?

    Does the 'newer' technology with a SWM setup,,,,, offer better performance then a WNC / -Z / -P,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, or is it just handier for 'new' installs,, using less coax from dish ?

    I have a 4 port LNB now, with 4 outputs/coax runs to three receivers. Short length of 4 coaxes,,,, to 4 port grounding block @ dish, then 4 runs inside, [one un-used / spare ] to 3 rec.

    The newer receivers will only run on the SWM. H25, HR34, HR44, C31 & C41.

    If you are not having a problem I would not change it.

    And I think "pig" refers to the inclusion of a "pigtail" jumper coax in the LNB kit?
