I think you've already answered your question here.
Being an early adopter rarely pays off in the linux world, unless you have
the skills to troubleshoot the drivers yourself and enjoy doing so.
Having had such problems in the past with other devices, even if 200€/8
tuners sounds like a good deal it really depends on how much you value your
free time.
Also keep in mind that theoretically every tuner needs its own cable coming
from the dish, right now I have two of them and having 8 for me would be
impossible (if you want to make them go inside the walls through existing
pipes).
FYI, my vdr box is an old PIII 1000 with 2 DVB-S2 tuners and one DVB-T (all
of them PCI). I've been using it for about 4 years now.
