Negligible.  I used to do exactly this with a single-core ION and
there were no problems at all.

Note that if you record to NFS and want Live TV on that tuner to work,
you may have to tweak your NFS options.  (Mike Dean will probably
follow up with an exact link to this information, but I don't have it
handy. :) )
