Sounds interesting, if I copy a video off my phone will I be able to see it in 
vdr without editing folders.conf?  I currently switch to xbmc to watch stuff 
recorded or copied outside of vdr .

I tried mixing existing recording directories into the entries
in folders.conf. However, this pretty soon gets rather complex.
Should recording directories only appear in the menu or should
they actually be written into folders.conf? What if they are only
in the menu, and you create a new subfolder in one of them?
I'd really like to keep things simple here...

With the new possibility of renaming entire folders and moving
around recordings from within VDR's menu there shouldn't be the
need for messing around with the actual disk files/directories
any more.
