I ve done it.  I set DB HostName=IP of MythTV PC

Then on the mythtv pc
mysql mysql
mysql> grant all privileges on *.* to mythtv@ identified by 
'mythtv' with grant option;
mysql> exit

I disabled on main.cpp the option to call tv_watch_live so I dont make the 
mistake of switching to live tv on the client PC. Compiled and installed 
I created a samba share pointing to the mythtv drive storage and mounted it 
on the client PC.  Edited settings.txt to point to the mounted drive.  Ran 
Mythfrontend and was able to select and playback recordings. Also able to 
schedule recordings, fix conflicts. etc.  Basically a mythtv without the 
live TV function.   Thanks.
