You've asked this question before. It is all dependent on the available connection speed. More speed equals more HD feeds. It has nothing to do with the PVR or Optik boxes at the house. 


4K says "up to" 5 HD feeds. Not always guaranteed because of the above mentioned reason.

it is quite simple if you do the math.


an average HD stream requires ~4mbit of bandwidth ( rounded numbers for ease of use) a 4k stream around 23mbit.


Let's say you have a 25 mbit connection, your maximum would be 3 stream; because you still require bandwith for you other devices besides in your home. Plus approaching the maximum margin puts a strain on your picture quality.


The above is a simplification as a lot more variables can come into play.


TLDR : it all depends on your bandwidth capabilities
