[mythtv-users] Master Backend to Slave Backend Questions...

All I had to do was to run mythtvsetup on the slave backend and change
the master IP address to point to the correct master, not itself. 
Then be sure to change the /usr/share/mythtv/mysql.txt to point to the
master's database.

If you have any recordings on the slave, I guess you could use
nuvexport to get them and their SQL, and then reinsert the recordings
into your master.  Or just watch and delete them first.  :)

I run dual backends with one pvr250 in each, and things work really
well.  I only have one frontend, however.
