The most sensible thing to me would be to ask the authors of those
plugins to make the directories it uses user-defined instead of
hardcoding VDR's recording directory, or change them in the source.
It seems backwards to change VDR's core behavior because of poor
plugin design.  That's just my 2 cents, maybe I've missed something
though.
