A first experimental version of the hard link cutter patch is available
The new version handles 1TB file sizes for TS recordings, properly
calculates the switch-to-large-files for 65535 files, and also handles
PES recordings properly with the old limits.
For TS recordings however, the need for the file size switch is probably
obsolete since the limit of 255 files is gone, so this feature might be
dropped on later versions.
The hard link cutter patch changes the recording editing algorithms of
VDR to use file system hard links to 'copy' recording files whenever
possible to speed up editing recordings noticeably.
For a complete list of changes, see web page. Don't miss the
README-HLCUTTER included in the patch.
