If you haven't created a cutlist then you probably don't have any....

I only use SD.... so I can't really comment on HD issues....

now what kind of talk is that? 

if you're willing to work with your file outside of mythtv itself then
you should have a look at ProjectX.... it will split the video and audio
streams for you while fixing up video stream issues.... you can then use
something like ffmpeg bring the two streams back together while
compressing each to whatever you want....
