3 x DVB-S2 Hauppauge Cards - Multirec x 2 so 6 tuners
2 x Dual Tuner DVB-T Hauppauge Cards - Multirec x 2 so 8 tuners
14 Tuners total
All in one dedicated backend box, no problems.
Has recorded 2 x DVB-S HD and 6 x DVB-T all at same time (that was the
biggest load on it ever though).
One suggestion is have multiple disks to avoid bottlenecks on disk IO.
