[vdr] VDR File splitting validation

Dear all,

We are using vdr (1.7.21) to record from a DVB-T2 stream. File split quota is at 200MB.
The broadcast stream comes with audio packets (data) roughly 2 seconds after then the video packets. They are in perfect time stamp sync (video-audio). It is just the data packets that are late in the data stream).

Now, when VDR does the file split (after the quota has been met and a video I-Frame is about to start) the audio packets that would be in sync with the latest video frames before the split are actually being contained in the next split file.

This creates me big extra workload, I want to be able to process the split files individually, but I cannot since they don't have audio-video integrity.

What would it take to make vdr splitting smarter in this case, that is to only split the files after all the significant audio packets have been received as well?

Thanks for your attention,
