Dish uses Nagra2 encryption now, and nobody anywhere has broken that, so 
any thought of using a DVB card is out the door. 
You will be using a normal reciever and IR blasting your channel changes 
like everyone else.  I've got a homebrew IR blaster on a single serial port,
with two IR leds.  I have it set up with two receiver box addresses and 
it's extremely reliable.  Search on the list archive if you want the 
write up from
a year ago or so.
