Files on Linux servers with names containing symbols not allowed in Windows file names don't download correctly.

While downloading files from my Linux based CubeRevo STB/PVR I discovered that when file names contain symbols not allowed in Windows file names (colon, for example), resulting file name gets truncated from the first symbol (including extension) and file itself is 0 bytes and therefore unusable. So "FORMULA 1: The Factory.trp" gets downloaded as "FORMULA 1" and is 0 bytes in size. After renaming file on the server, everything works, but obviously it's not the option when you don't happen to have sufficient privileges.
