This is exactly how I use mythtv.

The torc iPad app allows you to have a combined view. Which I first
thought: great, this is how it should be done... After using it for a
little while I found that I treat the content differently. My recordings
are ephemeral, I know 100% that I will not keep them. If there's a
recording I like, I will source a video from a DVD. And for TV series, they
are shows here so late that I would have sourced them from the US well in
It is also much easier for me to find content in split recordings/videos.

Having said that, I'd love for access to recordings to be redone. It's a
pain to find content that is only a few days old. It's such a pain, that if
it isn't watched within a week, it will probably never get watch
