if you think about PCI cards in newer motherboards - there are often 
just two (or at best three) PCI slots. With these two cards you can 
currently record two programs - and you're done unless you buy another 
backend with free PCI slots and also buy more cards (and antenna 
splitters, and signal amplifiers etc. - not even talking about dish 
where splitting the signal is even more complicated AFAIK). If Myth got 
this feature you could record say 6 or 8 programs without spending any 
more money for hardware...
