You may want to go for a hardware solution ..
would make 250 Films á 3GB ..
let's assume: 3GB equals 1 hour and think of: max. 8 hours per day viewing
would mean you have more than 30 days, "instant fun" ..
-> So coding, testing, bug fixing costs a lot more than a new hard drive ..
go and get yourself a new hard disc :-)
And I am not kidding ..
And if you think of HTDV in germany: h264 is on it's way, which is "one
more" then DivX, which is h263. So within short time you have high defition
TV with high compression.

Most of my VDR movies are between 2 and 3 GB in size.
I assume that there would be no noticeable loss of quality, if I would
convert them to DivX movies of about half the size, maybe also removing any
unwanted sound tracks.
This could even be done automatically by a background process.
However, that would be inconvenient, because now I would have to check both
the Recordings menu and the Mplayer plugin to look for a recording.
So, I wonder if it would be easy to make that transparent, so there is only
one user interface that takes me to all recordings.
