With low-budgets you can do that as they provide the complete TS. VDR
supports that feature in the 1.1.x development branch. The firmware of
DVB-S cards allows up to eight streams and Klaus Schmidinger was able to
record the eight streams on a AMD K6-450. But as it only worked on some
Transponders with no knowledge why, it doesn't work yet.
