The real limit is that the file format and the VDR API uses byte sized 
integers to represent this. (cIndexFile::Get uses an uchar *FileNumber.) 
This could be extended, even with moderate changes on the file format. 
(there are reserved bytes that could be used)

However, in any case it will break compatibility for the recording 
format and for the VDR API. And with some tricks, 255 files are enough 
too, so why break things?

Cheers,

Udo
