Its not a question of cards/devices, its a question of the number of 
adapters...which is currently set at 8 (see dvbdev.c for the 
max_adapters define). Example, a usb device with dual receivers means 
only 4 such devices would be supported ... if you desire more, change 
the define and recompile the drivers.

Note that "support for x number of adapters" is also somewhat dependant 
on the software you use -- though I'd expect that most would be 
respective of the above, you still should check the application to see 
if it has any further restrictions.
