Remember that "less than a buck" crystals are mass produced, often to relatively loose tolerances and poor temperature 
stability, and is unlikely to match your oscillator configuration.

A properly cut crystal to your specification will probably cost you 30-40 bucks.
My choice of supplier is http://www.quartslab.co.uk/
Don't forget to specify the oscillator configuration and component values if they don't know your particular 
downconverter model.
