What Sat for a Single LNB DirecTV Dish?

My neighbor has a very old, round single LNB DirecTV dish. What sat should it be aimed at for his SD receiver?

3 Hopper RV System

Just updated my DISH TV of RVs blog to include details of my 3 Hopper RV system.

To me what might be of interest in this update is the equipment and wiring necessary to move from a 1 or 2 Hopper system to a 3 Hopper network.

This experience has made me envious of DirecTV SWM technology in which a single coax from a SWM dish can supply multiple receivers.

We spent a morning touring Manzanar, a former WWII Japanese internment camp, just north of Lone Pine, CA.
Though sobering and very sad, definitely worth seeing.

For DISH 622, 722, or 722k Users

You may already know this, but just in case . . .

The Super Home Node (or SHN-24) has been around for a while and seems like a natural for RVers who use a DISH 622, 722, or 722k receiver and want to add additional TVs to their receiver.

You can add up to three SD (Standard Definition) TVs to a VIP 622, 722, or 722k using a Super Home Node (SHN-24).
In addition, the SHN-24 combines an OTA (Over-The-Air) batwing signal with the HOME DISTRIBUTION (TV2) signal from a 622, 722, or 722k receiver. This combined signal can then be distributed to up to 4 TVs using a single RG6 coax for each TV.
Here's a Super Home Node Wiring Diagram.

Here's a source for a Super Home Node.
