I would like to say unlikey. But I know for a fact at least three at a time.
So that leaves room for a show or two to record and everyone watching TV.
But I do hear what you are saying.

One more thing:
Even though you have 5 TVs, make sure you really need 5 tuners. How often
are all 5 TV's in use at the same time? Now, consider that each of those 5
TV's will have access to a huge library of previously recorded shows and
DVDs. Now, how likely is it that you will ever need 5 tuners simultaneously?

MPEG4 will never work with something like the MediaMVP. It has a chip
dedicated to video decoding that doesn't understand MPEG4 and never will.

An admittedly ugly/noisy solution, but and whitebox/dell/gateway pc
ca.1998-2000 w/ a 17" CRT will make a decent frontend.
17" CRTs can be had for free, and they work as HDTV monitors!

So do I make MPEG4 work?
Do I wait untill they release a new version or do you think they will
enable that with some kind of update?
Does anyone else have a setup model like mine? Do you use some cheap PC or
something? I am looking for super cheap thinclient front ends I am dumping
all the money into the back end.
So any recomendations on front end hardware is welcome. There is a new
AOPEN MiniPC (Wannabe Apple MACMini) that looks like it would work but I
am not familiar with linux hardware to say one way or another.
