If you're determined to use Myth for splitting up your recordings, you
could of course use the cutpoint functionality.  Basically:

* Mark the first episode in the recording as "keep", with the
remaining file as "cut"
* Use nuvexport to do an MPEG2->MPEG2 cut (this will leave you with
just that episode)
* Import the resulting mpeg file (there's a file in contrib/ to do this)
* Repeat for each show in each recording.
