I am doing something like that with Comcast ClearQAM and UHF channels off the air. I have a dual channel digital tuner off each source then have a PC running DVBlogic DVBLink server combing those two sets of sources into a single "source". I can then send any of those channels over the local network to any device for viewing. If you had smart/DLNA TVs, you could view directly or you would need a small box to connect to the network and send to the TV.
I just got things crudely set up in the last couple of weeks and it does seem to work. Still have a fair bit of work to do to get all the channels combined to eliminate the duplicates and get the program guide information correct. But it was nice to see full 1080i video streaming around the house over the network cable without any delay, and this with an 8yr. old PC as a server, pulling a signal off an HD HomeRun network tuner and sending it back over the same network to another PC.
So I am combining two different signal sources and sending the combined signal to a TV over a cable, just that the cable is ethernet (or WiFi) and not RG-6.
