I am going to be returning my Hopper 3 and reinstalling my 211K.

How do I rewire the the Hybrid LNB to work with my 211K?

Thanks

You need to replace the LNBF with a DPP. The one you have now is DPH, then bypass the Solo Hub

I haven't tried it yet but I think I remember reading that a Hybrid LNB is backwards compatible and will work with DPP equipment. I'll have to check it out one of these days.

It may be, but there may be a tuner issue. I know I've done VIP upgrades to Hoppers, changed the LNB and when I went in the house, Live TV was showing on the VIP

That brings up a question I've always wondered about. Is there a risk of damaging the lnb if disconnecting or reconnecting the lnb while the receiver is on?
