[mythtv-users] multiple "live tv" recording profiles for multiple frontends?

I'm playing with the Mac frontend binaries that were recently 
released on the Dev list (Excellent!) and have found that it is 
necessary to set the bitrate quite low in the "Live TV" recording 
profile to get good video performance over the net. That's absolutely 
fine for when I'm on my Mac, but I'd like to be able to keep the 
bitrate on my actual TV quite high. Probably much higher than any LAN 
is going to support consistently.

So, my question is - is it possible to set a custom "Live TV" 
recording profile for each frontend?

I would think this would be very convenient as you could configure 
each front end to make the best use of the resources it has 
available... for example, a frontend wirelessly connected over 
802.11g could be set to use lower bitrates (thereby saving 
bandwidth), while a wired 100-baseT (or 1000-baseT) frontend could 
maximize video quality.
