MythWeb != MythTV

In fact, MythWeb is more like a completely separate frontend than it is 
a part of MythTV.

MythTV hides LiveTV recordings by default.  MythWeb shows All Recordings 
or the recordings matching the title you've selected.  Chris is in the 
middle of a big re-write of MythWeb, so you never know, he may factor in 
the LiveTV group in the new version.
