    Maybe I am unreasonable, but I cannot find a PC which would offer the following:

    1. View/record Freeview and analogue terrestial TV
    2. View MPEG2 standard and hi-def satellite
    3. View MPEG4 standard and hi-def satellite
    4. Enable access to encrypted satellite transmissions as above (i.e. using at least 2 conditional access modules)
    5. Provide positioning control for a motorised satellite dish (36 volt motor)
    6. Provide at least 3 DVI inputs and at least 1 DVI + 1 HDMI outputs (all HDCP enabled)
    7. Provide wireless networking
    8. Bluetooth or IR remote (including keyboard)
    9. A stylish exterior...

    Any ideas?

    TIA

    For sure you will not find an off the shelf PC to do all you require.

    You will probably have to do a lot of searching on the internet to get the various components and software.

    For FreeView and analogue TV there are PC cards on the market.
    I believe sat cards are much rarer due to copyright issues.

    Software control of motorised dishes is not a first so the software will be available somewhere.
