im pretty sure you can use any old tv tuner card for satellite. just feed the satellite dish into the box provided to you by Dish Network and then into the coaxial input on your PC. I don't think tuner cards decode the signals themselves (so a direct connection from the dish to your PC won't work) but I could be wrong.

i recommend this card: http://www.xpcgear.com/atwonder650.html
