Hi Mika,

Thanks for this patch! Great to get this feature back that i have been 
missing since my recent upgrade from vdr 1.6 to 1.7

Would it be possible to enhance the patch so that you would get the 
directories also sorted separately: Directories before recordings / 
directories after recordings (i prefer the latter option) sorted by 
name... :-)
