I'm just wondering if anyone has tried using more than one card to get DVB-T with GB-PVR or mediaportal.

Basically what im thinking is:
I currently have a HVR-900 USB dongle
I am thinking of getting one of the PCI-e Dual DVB-T tuners, this way I have 3 tuners so can watch all 3 Mux at the same time.

Will there be any issues driver wise?

Thanks

Mediaportal (tv-server) supports multiple tuner cards. I have 2 identical cards tho'.  So I am unsure how a mix of them would go, but as they are identified separately in TV-Server and can be prioritised, they should work.  At the moment with twin cards I can record multiple channels from both main providers (TVNZ and Canwest) similtaneously.  Pity there isn't enough quality TV to need to do that too often.  Unsure about GB-PVR, haven't used it.

GB-PVR would work with your proposed three DVB-T tuners.

Hey guys new here, just thought I would let you know I have (as of an hour ago :) ) got Freeview DTT+Prime working in Media Portal v1 RC with a Nova-T 500 and PVR-150. Works great, from my trials would say it is currently the best PVR solution for getting all the free-to-air channels in NZ (and I have tried MythTV, Power Cinema, GB-PVR, VMC and WinTV).
