OK - everything seems to be pointing that I'm doing this in the wrong

Is there a way I can keep the mythtvweb page as it is but create a new
mythwebpage for my users to access which just shows the tv guide and
allows them to start a recording only. Ie no other options and cannot
stop a recording?

Or in other words, if you want to insert recording rules directly into
the database*, you need to tell the backend to reschedule so that it can
pick up the new rule and do the necessary for the program to be recorded
- rules evaluated, recordings scheduled & allocated to tuners etc.

* Generally not the recommended method as you are then responsible for
spotting any schema changes in the future and updating your code.
