They are different. One is old technology with 4 coax connections and the other one that has just one coax connection is the newest SWM technology.

Some receivers will not work with the new SWM technology.

If your receiver will work with SWM then it is a matter of going into satellite setup and choosing the right dish / technology.

not that not all SWM receivers will work with a legacy LNB, and not all receivers that work with legacy will work with SWM.

 

what model of receiver do you have. look for the model number inside the access card door..

Both have SL3S in the part number, aren't they both SWM? I thought the legacy LNBs part numbers started SLxK and the SWM LNBs started SLxS?

you are right.  SWM LNBs are denoted by an "S" following the LNB type.  so an SL3S is a SWM 3LNB.  an SL5S is a 5 SWM LNB.  and SL3 is a legacy LNB same goes for a SL5.  the "PIG" after the "S"stands for "pig tail" which was when DirecTV was shipping the LNBs with a coax jumper attached

The SWM SL3S4NR-14 is the one that is my primary at my house. The WNC SL3SPIG-WNC Rev1 is the one i'm wanting to use at the lake. The receiver I am going to use at the lake will be the HR24-500. Just wondering if the satellites have to be the same if I am going to use the same service.

Yes, while those LNBs are not identical, they are the same as far as functionality is concerned
