I don't know about a script, but, the name of the file is formed from: 
channel, date+time start, date+time end.  For example:


is channel 61, Sept 1, 2004 12:00 start, Sept 1, 2004 14:15 end.

As for the database insertion, I would suggest that you record a show 
and then export it via nuvexport.pl to see what the MySQL entries are.
