    Guess it would depend on how many rooms you want TV in. Using that Slingbox I referenced earlier, your Mac would be just another TV although it would be being fed via your network rather than directly from the satellite/cable.

    There really isn't any way currently that I'm aware of to plug the output of the satellite receiver directly into the iMac. The iMac is a computer and doesn't expect a TV type input. Maybe someday, they'll include an HDMI type input or something on computers but today, you need extra hardware.
