I know there's more than one guy.  :)  I'm one of the guys with 4 in one 
backend.  PVR-x50 setup with the 0.2.x or 0.3.x releases is just as easy 
with 1 or more cards.

Took more time to configure Myth than the cards.  I already had one 
PVR-250 installed and working, so I just plugged in the other three and 
the hardware worked.  Then, I went into mythtv-setup and configured the 
cards and video sources in Myth and was up and running.  I recommend 
taking this approach--get one working and then add additional cards--it 
will minimize the possible sources of confusion.
