Maybe I misread your post, but there are Satellite tuners for PCs. There are bucket loads of them (Hauppage, Compro, BlackGold, etc.). I run a pair of BlackGold BGT 3595 cards for all my DVB-S and DVB-S2 tv watching needs into a WMC set-up.
If the OP has DirecTV then it's a moot point, but from a "spreading the HTPC knowledge and love" perspective I wanted to clarify.
