[mythtv-users] Virtual file from multiple files

Currently I am experimenting with a Siemens cable tuner (DVB-C with 
smartcard) which is capable of recording to a network share (Samba).
However, it records in an odd way (probably to makes things difficult) 
it produces small blocks of mpeg TS files ( 2 minutes each) which when 
combined (by simpy cat-ting together for example) form a complete 
recording in TS format.

My question is:

Is there a way to 'link' these blocks together into one new virtual file 
and add this virtual file to the backend recording database ?
My goal is to control the Siemens from the backend by sending IR 
commands (the only way to control it...) and use it as an external DVB-C
