Like probably many baseball fans, I wasn't planning to watch last
night's World Series game, but eventually caught it and was glad I
did.  I'd like to keep it around.  I've rescued the recordings from
the auto-delete trash.  But since the game ran long, it's split over
FOUR recordings.  The first one correctly reports as the game, but the
last 3 are for the other programs that were scheduled for the hours
after the game was supposed to end, but were preempted.

I'd like to merge these recordings into one video file, still
accessible to MythTV as a recording.  Is there any way to do that, and
if so, how?  I'm new to manually mucking with recordings (I think I've
found these, still in the livetv folder even though I've saved them),
so any help would be much appreciated!

I'm running Myth 0.24.1 via Mythbuntu 10.04 on a single combined
frontend/backend.  If there's any relevant info I've omitted about
video file format or anything like that, please assume I'm using the

Thanks in advance!
