It's strange that you can play it but not delete it.
To be able to play it, mythtv must have figured out the filename properly.

Since it's just one hour difference, maybe it's a daylight saving thing?
Like some code part that takes it into account but not the other.
If so, maybe it woud be posibel to turn back the date or something, or
temporarily change timezoen just to test if it's realy the case.
