I think what you need is an sql command to insert the data into the recorded
table.   Something like:

INSERT INTO recorded (chanid, starttime, endtime, title, subtitle,
description, bookmark, editing, cutlist, hostname, category, autoexpire,
commflagged, recgroup, recordid, seriesid, programid, lastmodified,
filesize, stars, previouslyshown, originalairdate, preserve, findid,
deletepending, transcoder, timestretch, recpriority, basename, progstart,
progend, playgroup, profile, duplicate, transcoded, watched) VALUES
(1050,'2005-05-21 20:00:00','2005-05-21 20:30:00','Justice League
Unlimited','Task Force X','Incarcerated super villains are offered suspended
sentences on the completion of an impossible
20:00:00','2005-05-21 20:30:00','Default','',1,0,0)

It should be scriptable with bash as you can execute mysql commands with :
mysql -umythtv -pmythtv mythconverg -e"INSERT INTO....)

I have not verified that the above works so use at your own risk.  Backup
your database.  There is the added concern that the video needs to be
compatible with the internal player (playback, commflagging, bookmarking
