actually if you can find a SW-21X that would work too since its a single receiver setup.

They're on Ebay pretty cheap and the setup would be as such

110 & 119 into the SW21X (make sure it says 21X)...output of the 21X into port 1 of the SW21. 129 dish to port 2

The 21X switch is like a SW42 which is very old but allows you to cascade switches. I use to have a SW42 (4 lines in 2 lines out) and SW21's for 110/119/61.5

I have used the sw21 and 21x setup, but was told you can just cascade 2 sw21's.
maybe worth a try if you have one.

I've tried that and it wont work. It will recognize both ports on the switch closest to the receiver but only port 1 on the "back" one
