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.
