I have Dish satellite TV coming into my Dish box in my living room. I have another TV in my office that want to use for other purposes and be able to replace it my computer monitor as I have two large monitors on this PC already so plenty of real estate. This TV does not have a Dish tuner box ... the signal for this office is just split off my main Dish receiver using the room2 signal. It is a standard coax line. I don't need DVR or anything fancy as I honestly don't watch TV much in my office. What do I need to simply watch this signal on my computer? Thanks in advance ...

Input card that can take the feed from dish TV and display on the computer monitor.

If your dish outputs analog ch 3 or 4 over coax, get an NTSC tuner, and it will capture the feed.

6 TV's in the house on FiOS and we only pay $4.99/month to connect them all!!! Power to the CableCard and WMC7!!!
