index.vdr uses a 1-byte number to store the file, thats why the limit is
255. The format could be extended, there's enough reserved space that
could be used, but since its really hard to extend beyond 24h anyway,
why bother with the current 10-day limit? The only good reason would be
high speed cutting with small files.

Cheers,

Udo
