For me playbackability with VDR is really needed. I like dvbcut more 
than vdrsync because with the linear/logarithmic sliders you can really 
easy find start and end of ads or similar.

20TB. That would be more than 5000 single layer DVDs. What a mess. HDs 
are much easier to handle. But i really dont want to have 13000 
recordings! Have fun.
