I tried it, with vdr 1.5.14.

As a side-note, i CAN record FTA-channel and watch scrambled channel with another budget-card (i have 2 DVB-T budget tuners).

This experience is with ONE tuner:
1) I can record multiple scrambled channels from same multiplex
2) I can watch FTA-channels while recording scrambled ones.
3) I CAN'T watch scrambled channels while recording FTA channel on same multiplex.
4) I CAN start record on FTA channel, while recording scrambled channel, which is started before recording on FTA (then i can also WATCH any other scrambled 
channel from same multiplex too)

So while there's no recording on scrambled channel, while recording FTA channel, i can't watch any scrambled channels from same multiplex. When starting recording 
on scrambled channel (before starting recording on FTA), everything works as should.

Here is debug info with only one tuner in use:

Changing to FTA channel:
