I too have noticed a gap in back to back recordings.
Perhaps was chris refering to the simple uinx utility split? I don't
know much about the way mpeg2 works, but unless there is some header
that's needed at the beginning it might work. (perhaps errors at the
beginning of the file, but progs like mplayer are very good at dealing
with this.) Joing them back together would be as simple as using cat.
You also might look at using nuvexport to transcode the files into
xvid or something. It looks much better than straight mpeg4, AFAIK.
What sort of bandwidth are you trying to squeeze this in to, anyways?
