Can anyone twll me what the numbers after the show title mean in the filename?

Looking at the actual .mpg files, I see something like this:


I'm confused what the numbers mean, though. The Episode ID is EP8483610015, so that's not it. Does sage use this number somehow? If so, is there any way to find out what it would have been for a past airing?

The large number is the airing ID that SageTV uses to associate the recording with the appropriate airing in its database. That's how it can recognize the recording if it is moved to another recording or import dir. I believe Niel's webserver shows all the IDs for an airing.

The final "-0" is the segment number, so this is the first segment. If there was a 2nd segment for whatever reason, it would be "-2" and so on.

Thanks. I was playing around with the web server tonight and noticed that it generates the airing ID and renames the file when I edit the show info, so I guess I don't really need to know it, after all.
