19" rack is the way to go!

Yes, although only one front end can access the TV card at any point in time. The rest can view recordings etc.

Yes, if you want to make setup changes, X windows forwarding from another linux box is the way to go. The setup program which you need to edit channels (can be done in database) or add TV cards (also can be done in the database) is a GUI program. ssh -X <ip address> will auto set up the forwarding for you.
