Windows 7: Streaming Live TV to another computer (tv) on the home network?

Streaming Live TV to another computer (tv) on the home network?

Hey all, I have a Win7 x64 media PC with a InfiniTV 4 tuner in my living room. In my bedroom I have another TV hooked up to another PC (currently running Vista Business but that's probably about to change...).

What would be the best way to get the bedroom setup to behave as close as possible to a normal TV with a cable box by controlling and streaming video from the tuner card in the "main" media pc in the living room? Does media center have anything like this natively? I'm open to solutions that skip the second PC too if there's some magical ethernet based KVM switch that can just pipe everything up to the bedroom...

I've been eyeing Orb for a little bit but it looks clunky to use, admittedly I haven't tried it yet though. Also preferably I would like to be able to use both at the same time, with the bedroom PC just hijacking one of the four tuners on the infinitv 4 card.
