and the resolution is often less (that is how the file gets shrunk) since on the small device screen you can't see the high resolution.)

When I download some tv shows to my computer, it saves two files of each video files...

For example, if I download the Family Guy episode "Road to multiverse" There will be two files, one named "Family guy - Road to multiverse - Device" and the other one is called "Family guy - Road to multiverse -SD".

The one with the "SD" at the end of the filename is standard definition of course, but it's also a bigger file size and higher quality...

..Does anybody know what this is about, and why there are two files?

I deleted the "Device" file, and I can still watch the "SD" video, what exactly is the Device file even about?

I have the same videos downloaded to my xbox 360, if that makes a difference.

Much appreciated dudes.

Deleting files that you don't know why they're there is a really, really dangerous habit... one of these days you will break something important.
