You don't need a full-blown PC for a front end, at least not for SD. A
MediaMVP will do it.
But that's not what you want, I realize.
I suppose you could try to run 10-base-2 over the RG-6, the impedance
mismatch might not matter too much if the runs are short :-) (just kidding).
I suppose an ATSC modulator might solve your problem, but they tend to
be pricey, you could buy an entire PC for the cost of one.
