I have a 920 with a 10 foot dish and a "C" band LNB, and would like to
pick up the "X4" feeds. Can I just buy a Ku band LNB and attach it to my
feedhorn, or do I need to buy a completely new feedhorn with a
combination "C" and "Ku" LNB?

Thank you

You will need a feedhorn with 2 LNB's. One for C and One for Ku.

If you are not having problems with C-Band you can put your current LNB on the
feedhorn.

Check your feedhorn and see if it has a place to connect a 2nd (smaller) LNB, if it
does not have one you will need another feedhorn.

If your feedhorn has a Ku LNB fiting, you can. The Ku fitting is about
1 1/4 inches each side of a square, with a 3/4" or so hole (I think it
may be a bit larger). Search for a picture of a Ku LNB and you will
see the fitting. If it doesn't have one, yo need a new feedhorn as
well.
