Same exact problem here. Happens on my PVR-350 and my 500 with myth 
0.19. One thing I've noticed is that if I don't catch it inside of a 
couple mins it will eventually bring down everything as it starts using 
up all of the CPU with mythbackend.

I think it has something to do with the livetv changes where it records 
everything you watch. The reason we notice it on the hour or half past 
is because your watching half hour shows and it can't jump from one to 
the next. Seems like a bug.
