I just tried this by recording the same programme on "Das Erste HD" and "Das Erste",
which gave me the directory structure

   drwxr-xr-x 2 kls users 4096 Jun  4 14:46 Rote_Rosen/2012-06-
   drwxr-xr-x 2 kls users 4096 Jun  4 14:47 Rote_Rosen/2012-06-

Both recordings show up in the "Recordings" list and can be replayed just fine.

Can you reproduce your problem with plain vanilla VDR 1.7.28?
