You might anticipate problems with kernel memory (don't blame me if the
wording is not correct).
there the lines VmallocTotal and VmallocUsed.
If the difference is small, or if after installing the third tuner
you have stability problems in your backend, then use "vmalloc=192m" as
a boot parameter for your kernel (edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and
reboot or edit it in the grub menu).
