It would seem not.. Plus, on changing the USB device to my own PCI
cx88-dvb 'blackbird' card, VDR works beautifully... so given that I can
open 15 PIDs with dvbstream on the USB device, I can't see why changing
the DVB hardware should have any impact on VDR :(

I'm really just looking for extra pointers / where to put some 'pid open 
count' dprintf()s etc. ...
