The terrestrial broadcaster RiksTV in Norway has all it's channels
(about 15 I think) on only 3 multiplexes. So when the CI/CAM/Codec
stuff gets sorted out, you would only need 3 DVB-T units to record and
timeshift the whole package :)
So if I figured out multirec correctly, that would mean that I could
record from all 15 channels at the same time? (Assuming that the CPU,
RAM and disk IO is up to it ofcource :))
