[mythtv] Is it possible to install mythtv to a PC without a TV card and use as a "client"

In the mythtv settings.txt there is the directory setting for recording.  
Can this be a \\SMB_Machine\Directory. ( I have a 100 mbit connection 
between these two machines and use xine to playback mpeg from the other pc 
via the network connection with no lag)  The mysql database can be recreated 
on this TV Tunerless machine using mysqldump.  Its main purpose is to access 
the recordings and play back.  It would even be better if the MythTV 
database can be accessed and modified from this "client" machine so that you 
can do pretty much everything except record movies.  I know that MythTV is 
headed in this general direction but if there is a way to do this now, then 
it can tide us over until the mythtv release with the server-client 
capability.  Thanks
