Unfortunately not.  That's what I thought it did as well.

I currently use MythWelcome but then you must wait for the backend to
shutdown after an idle timeout.
MythShutdown allows you to set a wakeup time on the command line but
cannot retrieve the time of the next scheduled recording or detect
whether the backend is currently recording.

I think what I may have to do is try and write some code for
mythshutdown to query the backend for the scheduled wakeup time and
recording status.  I was hoping there would be an easier way though!
