Would it be possible (as a new feature) to filter/search/sort for recordings by recording-lifetime and/or if it is SD or HD?

I had the same problem (long time ago).
As a simple solution, I wrote a small python script
that creates folders with "virtual" recordings
(symbolic links to the real recordings).
The tool creates /video/Surround, /video/HD
and /video/Surround+HD. Inside each of them
there is the same subfolder structure as under
/video, except that they contain only the corresponding
subset.

Here is the source:

import os
import shutil
import sys

video_dir = "/video"


def linkto(root, name):

   components = []
   for root_component in root.split('/')[2:]:
      components.append(root_component)
      if root_component.startswith('%'):
         break
   source = os.path.join(video_dir, '/'.join(components))
   target = os.path.join(video_dir, name, '/'.join(components))
   target_parent = os.path.join(video_dir, name, '/'.join(components[:-1]))
   if not os.path.exists(target_parent):
      os.makedirs(target_parent)
   os.symlink(source, target)
for subdir in ("Surround", "HD", "Surround+HD"):
   path = os.path.join(video_dir, subdir)
   if os.path.exists(path):
      shutil.rmtree(path)
   os.mkdir(path)
surround_dirs = []
hd_dirs = []
surround_hd_dirs = []
for root, dummy_dirs, files in os.walk(video_dir, followlinks=True):
   if '%' in root and ("info" in files or "info.vdr" in files):
      surround = False
      hd = False
      for line in open(os.path.join(root, "info" if "info" in files else 
"info.vdr")):
         if line.startswith("X "):
            if " 5.1" in line:
               surround = True
            elif "high definition Video" in line:
               hd = True
      if surround:
         surround_dirs.append(root)
      if hd:
         hd_dirs.append(root)
      if surround and hd:
         surround_hd_dirs.append(root)

for root in surround_dirs:
   linkto(root, "Surround")
for root in hd_dirs:
   linkto(root, "HD")
for root in surround_hd_dirs:
   linkto(root, "Surround+HD")



Cheers, Carsten.
