Ok, I'll bite..

I assume this idea for recorded program structure might have been
considered at one point:

Instead of individual program recordings, store a single recording per
channel, with individual program recordings being pointers into this
per-channel recording. Not necessarily a continuous 24h recording,
only the actual periods for which a recording has been requested, but
still in a single recording.

This would make it much easier eg. to continue playback of something,
when a recorded program ends, and there's another program scheduled
after, that you also recorded.

It could also allow 'browsing back in time' eg viewing the EPG for
yesterday, with a recording symbol next to the programs that were
actually recorded.

Also, it would avoid data duplication. An 'export to file' function
could of course be available.
