is there any PCIe 2.0 compatible internal TV tuner card with HDMI input, which can display simultaneously at least four side by side different LIVE TV channels coming out of my Satellite set top box via HDMI output and relay it to my LCD PC monitor which is connected to a graphic card on my motherboard internally.?

The problem I see is that the set top box is designed to only output one channel at a time.

In order to do what you're wanting to do, you'd either need four set top boxes and multiple HDMI input cards, or a quad-tuner TV Tuner Card to replace your set top box. Then you'd need some sort of software package that can display four different channels on the same system simultaneously.

I don't know that it will work, but if you got four set top boxes, you might be able to use something like this Hauppauge Colossus card, but you'd also need a motherboard that has four PCI-E slots and I have no idea what type of software you'd need to run to view all four channels simultaneously.
