Question about the Sage Copy File Api's

StartFileCopy and StartFileDownload do not specifically say they are only for media files but when I use them from Java to copy a non media file like an .edl file I get the following error:
Fri 6/8 18:08:24.054 Download requested for files server=null src=\\htpc-cr\SageTVRecordings$\Bewitched-2007-05-16-EWAM(407)-799614-0.edl dest=V:\VideoEditing\Bewitched-2007-05-16-EWAM(407)-799614-0.edl
Fri 6/8 18:08:24.056 ERROR with file download Error opening remote file of:NON_MEDIA
So my question is: Do they only work with media files or should I look for something else in my Java code? This works when I just copy the media file!

SageTV's MediaServer only allows downloading files that are imported into the SageTV Library. It's a security precaution - we don't want SageTV opening up access to the entire file system; that'd be a major security hole.

You can edit which files are allowed; but you can only add individual filenames through the property:

It expects a semicolon delimited list of absolute file paths (or relative to the SageTV install directory).

If you use the StartFileDownload API with http or ftp URLs then it'll allow downloading of anything.
