Hi Tobias, 

My use case is rather simple: I use vdr on a no-screen server and I schedule 
recordings using Live (:8008). I want to re-encode those recordings using ffmpeg 
(from main). 

So I thought that for it to work, it would be logical to first merge the various 
*.vdr TS files into one PS file, but I then noticed that replex can't keep the 
multiple audio tracks. So I was about to use replex to demux the various media 
tracks into individual files, which I could then encode separately before 
merging them into a single matroska file for example.

But I am maybe mistaken and replex is not the correct tool to do what I want. 
What do you think ?

As a new vdr-* user, I might be interested in joining the vdr packaging team for 
simple tools like that one.
