    I thought I saw this once, then went looking around, and now I see nothing, so maybe it was a dream. Is there anything made that will decouple the SWM channels into legacy inputs in your home?

    I ask, as it would sure be nice to be able to use a single cable around the house, and still link in things like an old TiVo by decoupling the SWM channels at the receiver back to legacy inputs.

    I am guessing the answer is NO, and I need all newer receivers, but figured I'd at least toss this out and see if anyone has heard of such a beast!

    I don't think I've heard of anything like that. The stand-alone SWM8 module does however have 3 legacy ports (they don't see 99 or 103).

    Understood, but using the legacy ports I have to run individual runs though the house to each input, killing the beauty of a single cable run to the top floor of my house. Why a demux unit for the SWM would rock, but I suspect there is no such beast!
