My System Specs

Default 3 receivers, 1 server, multiple PCs/TVs

Here's the deal... I don't have enough receivers to feed everything I'd like to feed in the house.
I'd like to be able to watch TV on my TVs and on my computers.

Where do I start?

Getting the signal from each receiver to the server should be fairly simple. I was thinking
  • 3 TV-tuner card(or whatever they're called).
  • Each card individually hooked up to a receiver.
So that gives me 1 "server" with 3 satellite signals coming in. Everything sits in the basement by the patch panel. My network is wired cat6. I have yet to find a nicely priced gigabyte hub, but that's beyond the point. Lets pretend the network runs at 1gig. There is no wireless in my house.

Now... how do I get those satellite signals to individual PCs in the house?
I don't know what the hell I'm talking about and I don't know what I'm getting into, so I don't know what to ask for

For reasons XYZ, I can't add more receivers.
