Thanks for help.
I will try mythweb.
For wathing live tv is there any option so that you use one tuner to record one channel all the time and watch that record from other frontends?
I am just trying to see if it is possible to watch TV with 1-2 minute delay? Maybe you can put one tuner for on channel and it records the whole channel with some delay and then you can watch live TV simultaneously. Of course you need to overwrite before your disk is full. Is there any way?

To watch live TV on 3 frontends at the same time you'll need 3 tuner
cards. You can however watch pre-recorded shows on one frontend en
live-tv on another at the same time.
If you have a XMLTV source you can use you should have a look at the
mythfilldatabase command (mythfilldatabase --help). You can import an
xml file into the database that way. You can use mythweb to set the
frequencies on the channals.
