It's probably a Winegard RM-DM46 manually aimed single legacy LNB dish. It's capable of receiving programming from one satellite at a time with some of the older receivers such as the Dish Network VIP211k. I'm not familiar with which DirecTV receivers work with legacy LNB's, but it would be for standard definition signals only since they use a different standard for high definition TV. It will receive both standard and high definition signals on Dish. We have one on our motorhome that I modified to work with newer Dish receivers, but I would only use it if we had a problem with our portable tripod mounted dish that's capable of receiving three satellites at once.
