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.
