It all depends on existing electronics, what Krell says a DPP Twin on a dish 500 and a DP single or dual on a second dish is preferred way to add Hd for 2 receivers.

Ok, lets clear the air here. There are DPP LNB's. The Dish Pro Plus Twin (which is probably what your friend is using if he already has a 322 hooked up.) There is also Dish Pro Plus 1000.2/1000.4 - Eastern or Western Arc.
If you're friend has a DPP Twin pointed at 110/119 a wing dish could be put up pointing at 129. You would want to use a DP Single LNB for the wing dish. The DPP Twin has an 'LNB In' connection on it, so you can switch in an additional satellite.
You can also switch the dish 500 with a new dish 1000.2 and matching LNB.
Either way, no external switching is needed. If, for whatever reason, you need to do an external switch, the DPP33 would be recommended as you would only need to run 1 cable to the 322. Whereas with the DP34 sw you would need to run 2 cables to the 322.
Also, if you're using a DPP Twin and decide to use an external switch, either of the ones mentioned above (DPP33 and DP34) will not work correctly with the DPP Twin. You would want to swap the DPP Twin with 2 DP singles.
Hope this helps.
