Odd MPEG files on drive. Can I delete them?

I was looking at my capture drive and found 3 files that do not show up in my SAGETV recordings. They are MPEG files , just like the files SAGE records. Two seem to be related with my PVR cards and seem to be short video footage. The file size is 16,385 KB. The files are called:


The third appears to be part of a TV show I do not watch and is 1555,048 KB in size.


Can I delete these files without screwing up SAGETV?

You can most likely delete them: The first 2 are probably just preview recordings from Channel Setup, Color Calibration, or v3's source configuration process. The last one is probably just a partial recording -- you could play it in some other player to see if it is a complete show.

SageTV Open Source v9 is available.

I have an import screen which allows you to view all 'partial recordings' that Sage knows about, and delete them... Note that you also need my dynamic menu import to access this screen.
Check out my enhancements for Sage in the Sage Customisations and Sageplugins Wiki
