I'm not sure how the file naming is accomplished in gbpvr with the HD-PVR device, but I thought it would always create .ts files. But while doing some testing, I got a .MPG filename.

The device wasn't acting correctly and my first recording attempt failed, so I unplugged it and plugged it back in to reset it. My very next recording then ended up a .mpg file instead of .ts. For a second, I thought another tuner did it, but the log shows it was the HD-PVR and the file is indeed encoded CABAC.

Not a big deal... just one of those little things.

Here's the log - look for the second recording attempt. The first one (which failed) got the filename correct.

Restarting recordings (or the recording service while recording) can cause this if there is a name clash. In general day-to-day use where you're not restarting recordings you wont get this.
