[mythtv-users] Max number of recording cards in one backend?

Anyone know how many recording cards could I reasonably expect to be able
to run in the same backend? Obviously this is dependent on the bitrates
selected, I guess that the PCI bus would eventually be saturated. I'd be
recording to disks installed in the same machine.

A bit of Googling tells me that the theorectical max bandwidth of a PCI
bus is around 127Mbit/s, but there's a lot of overhead in there.

So what's a 'reasonable' number, can I get away with 3xDVB-T + 1xPVR-250 ?
