Depends a bit on how you was planning to implement it:
    - If you would record all programs to the same file yes.
    - Multiple file = NO, but requires some a lot of makeover.

On a sidenote, I would like to have this feature as well,
have a transponder with 6 movie channels (1W, Canal+) on it ;)
