I need some advise on setting up a video/audio system for a new bar that is opening in the town that i am living in.
I have never done anything like this before but I will always try my hand at something new.

Basically, the bar is a 2 floor building. It is not fully furnished yet. They want a PC and Satellite feed going to 2 TV's and 6 speakers down stairs. Upstairs they want the same feed going to a projector and 6 speakers.

My guess at it is this...
Feeds come in from the PC and Satellite. From there, the video goes into some kind of splitter which in turn, feeds the video to the 2 tv's and Satellite.
The Audio again comes from the two sources and from there goes into an amplifier or sound board, and from there goes directly into the speakers?

My client would like the option to have different video and audio feeds on each tv if he chooses.
Any advise you could share with me would be gratefully appreciated.

Here is a crude drawing of the set up plans in my head.

just think of this as a house with three bedrooms. Get the Dish Hopper system, I think it has 6 tuners in the main box. Not sure what the PC is doing in your mix.

Most of the systems I have seen like this have a closet full of DirecTV receivers, so that each TV can play a different channel.

You can get fancier, and have a bank of DirecTV receivers feeding a matrix routing switcher, which in turn feeds each TV set. That way, any DirecTV feed can be switched to any one or more TV sets. Matrix switchers can be a bit pricey, however.
