Welcome to the forum.
It's not quite as simple as you state. Yes, changing out all LNBs to the Xku type will result in you getting the feed from all 3 Birds (SD or HD). (You can change them all yourself and avoid the fees. The caveat is all 3 receivers need to be listed on the same account and activated for this data stream (V Code). You will have to call Shaw Direct after you install the new LNBs, and tell them you want they to change the V Code to accommodate them. If all 3 receivers are on the same account they should do them all. Unfortunately the Customer Service folks sometimes only change the data stream on one of them, and you'll need to call back for the other two.
Were all 3 receivers listed on your Cabin account? If so when you activate them make sure to ask them to do all 3.
