Renumbering would defeat the purpose of keeping the numbers constant ;-)

With just 8 digits for the ID, you could do 1000 recordings a day and
still not overflow the number space in over 270 years. Or more
realistically: over a lifespan of 10 years, a VDR instance would reach
five-digit numbers only with at least three recordings daily, and
six digits with 27 recordings daily.
