<br>The details about handling multiple video directories are explained in<br>VDR's INSTALL file.<br><br>Basically, if you specify -v /var/lib/video.00 on command line, VDR will<br>automatically search for .01 and so on, and will use them all for recording.
<br><br>Disk usage will be split across all disks, even recordings will be<br>split. VDR maintains a complete folder hierarchy in the .00 folder,<br>using symbolic links to mirror files on other disks to the .00 folder.<br>

I have added a partition as .01 for example but only new recordings stored there are visible inside vdr's recordings menu but none of the 'old' recordings are. I guess what I should have done is add the 'old' recording's partition as .00 and the new partitions as .01 etc etc. Other than changing the order of the partitions symlinked to is there any way to correct this problem now?
