silicondust mpgbuf files

Hi all

I've noticed that occasionally, a .mpgbuf file appears in my sage recordings folder. It is coming from my silicondust HDHR tuner.
My supervisory program is feeding it to comskip and doing other grooming on it because it thinks it is a video file.
What is it doing there, when is it created, when is it deleted, why is it only coming around once a month or so?

Just wondering if i need to edit my software to treat it differently.

Sage Server(7): Win7SP1 32bit Quad core 2.6ghz 4gb ram (~3.2ish)
1TB RAID 10 Promise TX4310, 1TB external USB
2x HD PVR (1.05.301 whql working flawlessly) <-Verizon FIOS HD QIP7100 2 cable box controlled by USB-UIRT 2 zones
1x HDHR (dual tuner) <- Verizon wire
3x HD200 wired latest beta fw
Gig-E wired network

Those are created by the channel preview in tuner setup. My advice would be to configure your comskip scripts and such to ignore them.
