Tv Tuner with Broadcasting

Specs: Windows Vista and Windows 7, Core 2 Duo E8400 / 4
Hey guys,

I want to get a new TV Tuner for my computer. I want
to find a good quality one that will allow me to
broadcast my televsion over the internet to another
computer. For example, I would like to be able to
watch the television on my laptop via the tv tuner card
in my desktop. Does anyone know of a TV Tuner
that will allow me to do this (software included to
broadcast)? I would like to be able to control the
channels and everything from a remote location.
Maybe I'm going about this in the wrong way and the
only thing I need is the correct software. If that is the
case, does anyone know any software that I could
use?

Whatever way it will work, I must be able to control
my TV Tuner from a remote location so that I can
watch TV and change channels. If anybody could
help me please let me know. Thanks in advance!

I think what you need is called a TV with remote. Seriously, I don't think such a thing exists but why not just have a TV in the same room?

Not sure if what you want would even be legal. It would be a rebroadcast of whatever you watched. That is a no no with the networks.

Beyond TV (for the PC w/ tuner) and Beyond TV Link (for the laptop) are what I use.

As for the tuner, I went with Hauppauge because they have a hardware MPEG compressor built in. Sadly, the MPEG stream is too much for my wireless network. Normally, Beyond TV has an option to degrade the stream enough to work on the network, but Beyond TV refuses to use its software compressor with my card.

EDIT: I should mention that I can still watch previously recorded shows because Beyond TV does transcode to DivX (which reduces the show down to about 20% of the size of the MPEG original).

If those gizmos work then I am behind the tech curve.
