Looks like you have a lot of hardware to replace.

You need to have two NICs to run a Hybrid core properly.. One NIC connected to your DSL/Cable modem, the other NIC connected to your internal LAN. Use supported hardware, and try to refrain from using wireless no matter what, it is not reliable for this type of system.

Use a Hauppauge card for DVB-S,
I also recommend using an SB Live or NVidia audio chip for sound. the X-Fi is NOT supported well under linux at all. bitch at Creative.
