If the web browser can see both the website and the Myth box, you could 
have a text box to enter the IP of the Myth box into on your website (you 
can even store it in a cookie).  Then when you click the "record" button 
on your website you can get the browser to execute some JavaScript which 
requests a HTTP object (page, image, whatever) from the web server on the 
Myth box with all the information needed on the commandline (i.e. load an 
image called recordsomething.php?showname=foo&channel=bar from the Myth 
box).  You could even get it to bring up the Myth Web recording scheduler 
so all the recording properties can be tweaked by the user.
