They're both the exact same thing Sirius used to call it an FM modulator RELAY, now it's a Direct FM adapter RELAY. The FM modulator relay (14110) has been discontinued, but they're still selling stock.

(It also used to be called a SAT-SWB switch box relay at one time too). Edit.. I believe the SAT-SWB had a larger plug and won't work with the newer radios)..

(Anyway.. RELAY and SWITCH are the operative words)...

This unit isn't a modulator. The modulator is the FM transmitter built into your Sirius receiver. This relay allows you to connect the FM-OUT from your modulator and feed it directly to your car radio. The relay switches between your FM-OUT an the car antenna.

Here's the instruction manual for the relay.. See page 7 for a complete destcription of how it works.

I applaud your efforts in reiterating this and clarifying it as many times as this needs correction. It's probably a good thing that Sirius took the word "modulator" out of the relay name.
