PyTivo transfered file naming convention

PyTivo transfered file naming convention.

When I transfer and decode a file from a Tivo with pyTivo
a number is assigned to the file. Such as
Last Man Standing - 4166360.mpg
and the associated file
Last Man Standing - 4166360.mpg.txt

I am trying to find out if there is any association of the numbers of the file to something meaningfull in the episode date, number , episode id, etc

Last Man Standing - 4166360.mpg.txt
seriesId: SH01419581
seriesTitle: Last Man Standing
description: Vanessa is concerned for Eve's safety when she is asked to be the high school's first female kicker; Boyd gets in trouble for starting a game of war at a birthday party; Vanessa turns to Mandy for fashion advice.

The number is the TiVo's internal ID for the recording. We use it because it's guaranteed to be unique -- i.e., it prevents a filename collision. It doesn't correspond to anything but the order in which recordings were made, AFAIK.
