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 ?

Yes, the SWM model has one coax connection to the LNB.

It then uses one coax to each receiver, even the DVRs use only one.

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?
