how do I know if my boxes are mpeg 2 or mpeg 4?

I have two older RCA boxes that I assume could not be mpeg 4 but I have two "newer" boxes that I don't know what they are .. one is a Phillips and one a Hughs box respectively..

I do have an older or the first generation of oval dish.. is this mpeg 2 only or not?

thanks for not ripping me on the answers..

Right. Philips and Hughes did not make MPEG-4 boxes. As far as your dish, if it does not look like the one in the DBSTalk logo, very wide with a wide LNB assembly (the doohickey sticking out) then it will probably have to be replaced as well.
