Antenna Setup

I had made a call to Directv last night for a minor issue. During this discussion the tech support person had me check my antenna setup. I was configured for "04 5lnb." He had asked that I changed it to "18 5lnb swm." My question is what are the differences for all the antenna setup numbers? This is something new in the setup menu.

The first setting is for systems with 4 wires coming from the LNB on the dish to separate inputs on receivers, the latter is for systems with 1 wire coming from the LNB going to a splitter and then to single inputs on each receiver, or systems with 4 wires coming down from the LNB to a SWM5, 8 or 16 multiswitch.
