> When you change the master IP address in mythtvsetup on the slave

> single master with the correct user/pass. Both backends store their
> recordings on local disk (at least in my case) and the master can see
> its own recordings and the slave's recordings, allowing all recordings
> to be played from one frontend. My slave backend does not have mysqld
> running at all; it uses the master backend's db and the master does
> all the scheduling for both capture cards.
