Thanks for information.Allan,
There are two basic choices - networked or dedicated. Networked are more expensive, but can feed multiple PCs. Of the dedicated the TBS range offer USB output (TBS5925 for low cost as second-hand or TBS5927 new, and perhaps slightly better performance), or PCIe card (can take both the Basic and both High-Volume services). USB works with any PC but only for BAS and HVS-1. PCIe means a desktop PC and opening it.
Suggest LNB be high gain (allowing longer cable runs) and a PLL one. I don't know how Sky mangle their LNBs - if at all. Try it and see! "Universal LNB" is a typical description. Twin output or quad (allows a separate lead for monitoring or multiple receivers):
