The wheel group is the historic name for what is now usually called the
sudo group.  The idea is that you can just add users to the group instead
of configuring them individually in /etc/sudoers.  Most distributions will
ship an /etc/sudoers file with:

%sudo   ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

in it, which makes this work.  Presumably in terms of what you're trying to
accomplish, this is because the automatic shutdown will be done by the
mythtv user via sudo as:

sudo shutdown -h now
