To add some more variations to the same solution the others already 

- Mount your big disk to /mnt/data
- Put video to /mnt/data/video
- either:
   - pass /mnt/data/video directly to VDR
   - put a symlink from /video to /mnt/data/video
   - bind-mount /mnt/data/video to /video

All theee solutions work without any trouble, and there's plenty of 
other space on /mnt/data available.

Since many people seem to miss this obvious solution, maybe you should 
add this as example to the documentation?
