Here's what I have:
HDTV1: HR20-700 (call this the "A" box)
HDTV2: HR20-700 (call this the "B" box)
Existing coax from "A" so I can watch its programming on this TV
SDTV1: Existing coax from "A" so I can watch its programming on this TV

I control the HR20's via RF.

I have a 5-LNB dish without a multiswitch (two cables from the dish to both HR20's)

----------------------------------------------
If I call D*, what would I get? Would I need a D* box on my SDTV? Would they need to add a multiswitch?

Thanks in advance for your help!

"Seems like" you have a third TV without a DirecTV receiver.
The MRV upgrade would take a change in the LNB to SWiM, a new H21/23/24 for the third TV, 3-4 DECA adapters for the network and internet access.
The $99 + $49 service call should give you all "but" the new receiver, though these are now fairly cheap and "might be" a give-a-away with this upgrade. The receiver would come with a 2 year commitment.
