Bob, I connected the 4 outputs of the dish to the correct 4 on the SWM-8. Then a cable from the SWM power inserter connection to the power inserter. The other connection went to the SWM 4 way splitter.
So, what coax line did your run to your controller? That cannot be from the SWM output.
I may have mis-spoke on the legacy port being viable for your controller since some more reading makes it sound like the KA signals will not pass. And it is not clear if your controller uses the KA or KU signals for aligning on 99 or 103 or uses an identifier on 119. But, since D* made an ASL-1 splitter for meters like mine that is based on sat 101 and sat 119, it is my guess that this is similar to the technology Winguard is using in their controller. Also, ads for the AIM meter further suggest that only D* has the technology to accurately read KA information leaving all other meters to use KU markers on these birds. This is why I think the legacy port should work with your controller.
We need someone like VOS to fill in the blanks on this one. The only thing I know for certain is that your controller has no idea what to do with a SWM signal so it cannot get fed from the SWM feed.
I don't know if this helps or confuses. But, you are on ground that has been very slippery for those who have treaded here before. It would be really nice to get a success story from your experience.
