How can I get my refund from an amended return direct deposited?

I don't see a space on the 1040X to put my banking information. How will they know to direct deposit it? Will they use same banking information from my original return?

You'll actually receive a check from the IRS. 

 

From Page 13 of the 1040X Instructions, Line 22: 

You will receive a check for any refund due to you. A refund on an amended return can’t be deposited directly to your bank account.

Thanks. Was hoping there was option for direct deposit but I guess the IRS is set in their ways.
