Would love to find that...

Is it in mythtv-setup or just the regular setup in mythfrontend?

My Mythbackend is also the frontend that I sit at most of the time
and since it reaches out and grabs the slave's tuner first
I end up putting all that traffic on my local network. This hasn't
been a significant problem but its an annoyance I'd like
to clear up.
