automatically splitting these recordings on the 00 and 30 of
hour (like it thinks that I'm recording multiple 30 minute blocks

Are you sure Mythtv is actually doing the split? Could your cable DVR store it's recordings in 30 min segments? When it plays back something it just puts 2 x 30 min segments and it looks like it recorded a 1hr chunk as one file? It may store small files since it is more efficient for it to deal with?
If it is in 2 x 30min segments myth would see a brief pause between them...
Can you record a show on your cable DVR that starts at 5:55pm and ends at 7:05pm?
I have no way to test this idea, just another thought.
