Can I add a question to this?

I have a BUD with C and KU lnbs. The KU is just for 4dtv right now.

The FTA guys speak of Circular AND Linear LNBF's. Does this mean to access FTA Ku I'd need (gulp) 3 ku lnbs on my feedhorn?

no
The only LNB that needs circular are the DBS slots (Dish & Expressvu). You can use a linear LNB for the other 20+ KU satellites.

Only 2 LNB's are needed (unless you really wanted to get the audio on Dish or ExpressVu)

Yes you can and I have seen adapters but you can most likely make your own.

You can use 1 wire you would need a switch at the lnb. Most FTA receivers support the switches but the old C band receivers and 4dtv do not.
Just put your FTA receiver inline first and loop to your cband receiver. Use your FTA receiver to do the LNB switching.
