With only a Nexus-S, you can record as much channels as you like - but only as 
long as they are on the same transponder.

An additional budget card can be tuned to another transponder, so all its 
channels become available for recording/viewing, too.

Say you want three recordings at the same time, and the three channels happen 
to be on different transponders. You would need 2 additional budget cards. 
However, if all three recordings are on the same transponder, you would be 
fine with just the Nexus.

It could get complicated though if the channels are encrypted. I don't know 
how this is handled and what implications it causes.


P.S.: Please have a look at
