Going from HD DVR back to Directivo SD

Last year I upgraded from my Samsung SIR-4040R Directivo to HR23-700.

The new box just has the one cable coming in (SWM).

My old box requires 2 cables, 1 per tuner. If I wanted to go back to my old box, is there some type of box that would go from the 1 SWM cable to 2 cables to allow my old box to work? I called Directv support and they told me no. I just want to make sure they gave me the right answer.

They did. SWiM is not compatible with the old system (or is that the other way round?!).

If you can see your dish, is there 1 or 4 wires running from it into the house? If they installed a SWM LNB then you are out of luck. However, if they installed a separate switch, then that device will have 2 "legacy" ports that will work with your SIR-4040.
