HI,
I just picked up my first C-Band system yesterday. The guy gave it all to me
for free, just to get it out of his yard. This is what I got:

10' dish\LNB with 1 year old turning motor.
General Instrument Innovation 450i
Motorola 4Dtv DSR905
and one big steel pole (very rusty)

He tells me that everything wored perfectly before his wife disconected it.

All the caballing had been cut to shreds by his wife. I mean even all the
cables coming off the back of the units were sniped at about 3". Luckily not
the power cords.

How do I know if what I have includes Ku-Band and how many conductor cable
do I need to buy to run between the dish and my units inside? I have seen
RG6 cable , 5 conductor C-Band cable and 6 conductor satellite cable.

Hope this is the right NG,
~Ben
