I do not know if the index file has a signature/magic-code at the start. If 
yes, it should be easy to define a new index-format with Longer integers for 
the file number.


Another thing that comes to my mind, but is sure hard to implement:
If I do two or more simultanous recordings from the same channel, why couldn't 
VDR record this to the same file, and hardlink it to both directories. That 
would reduce the need to create one long recording, if one would like to 
record two or more shows that are broadcasted one after the other.
