Reading from:


If you want to use the multirec feature, you need to delete your
multirec-compatible capture cards in mythtv-setup, recreate them as
before, and then (key step) choose the desired number of 'virtual'
tuners for each card using the Record options (Max Tuners default=2).

Setting the number of virtual tuner >1 for a capture card enables
multirec and governs how many parallel recordings can be made from a
capture card, assuming the channels to be recorded from are broadcast on
the same multiplex.

You may need to rescan your DVB channels to allow this function to work


Is the absolute max 5 for this setting?
I can't increase the number of tuners beyond that.
