Nube here. I have 2 dish 322 rcvrs i bought from a friend in Fl, and need to know which lnbf to use. I have an old (10 yrs old) 18in dish with the rectangular lnb arm but noticed new lnbs are oval shaped. I also have 2 dish 301 rcvrs I will install in a rental next door sometime next year. Can I connect all 4 rcvrs to one lnb or do they have to be separate dishes. Right now all I want is the lnb for my 2 322 rcvrs. Can I change the lnb arm or get an adapter to fit the newer oval style lnbs. Thanks for your help.

#1 you need a DPP Twin for the 322 you also need to upgrade to a DISH 500 dish the dish you are describing was for DIRECTV.
#2 You need a separate account for the rental next door.
#3 The 301 receiver is being discontinued so it probably won't be usable next year.

#4 you don't give a location but if you are in an EASTERN ARC area you can't use the 322 only VIP receivers can be used with Eastern Arc.

You would need a DPP44 switch to feed four receivers. You should have also checked with Dish that the receivers you purchased were not leased units that do not have a balance on them. If leased, the need to be sent back to Dish and you cannot active them. If the have a balance due, you would need to pay it before the receivers can be released.

You will need a Dish500 . If you can share the dish, then you would need the DPP44 switch, but usually it is easier to have each house having their own dish. For yourself (with the two 322's) - the requirement on the LNB would be for a DPP Twin. the other house could use the same or some other combinations (post what you want to do and we can give you advice).

If you can activate the 301's - as stated - Dish will be replacing those shortly with 311's.

BTW - all these receivers are standard Definition only, so you must be pointed at 119 / 110.
You CAN put antennas on your owned and/or controlled property...
