Maybe you should mount reiserfs with the "notail" option for video-partitions, which should kill most of the overhead. I run reiserfs with vdr since 10 years or so, no problems at all even when running in 100% used diskspace often.

AFAIK notail disables reiser's ability to pack small (<12k) files together, and since recordings are just a little bit bigger, I don't think that this would help.

The time I had this issue, I was excessively using VDR's ability to automatically delete old recordings, so free disk space was always running down to 1 GByte (39 min), and this remaining GByte was mostly fragmented down to thousands of pieces of a few KBytes. I doubt that any other file system would do better.
