Yes, there is a major difference in the way things work when using a SL3-SWM and a 'conventional' SL3 (non-SWM). Receivers can be swapped back and forth between the two antenna/LNB types, but a B-band converter is required between receiver and antenna when using the non-SWM LNB (unless the receiver is H23 or HR23) if you want access to all the channels.
To keep things simple, I would recommend swapping the 'conventional' LNB on the out-building antenna for a SWM version.
