I think the event you will need is "Recording pending"
(EventCmdRecPending in the settings table).  This happens shortly
before a recording starts, and allows you to do things like wake up
hard drives or power on a set to box.  Then the "Recording started"
event happens (EventCmdRecStarted) when mythbackend actually starts
using the tuner.
