You can hook up the R22 to that dish, but will not get HD.
To get HD you need a Slimline 3 or Slimline 5 with or without SWM. If you only have one coax to the dish, get the SWMLine LNB + Slimline + Power Inserter, as it only requires one coax. For an R22, with a legacy LNB you would need two coax and two BBC's to use both tuners with a non-SWM dish.

I have 2 rg6 direct runs to the dish. but I would still need to change the dish to get HD?

If I do that I will prob upgrade to a HD dvr
An R22 will operate as an HD-DVR as long as you have HD access already on your account before activating it.

It will show in the receiver settings as an "(R22 with HD)/XXX"
