This approach looks interesting.

Now I have a question:

What are the minimal hardware specs for a master backend (no TV-card, no 
storage), which would store the database and "wake" slave backend(s) when 
needed ?

This way, the system that is on 24/7 could also display the programm guide 
threw mythweb, so backends wouldn't need to wake up just to schedule recordings.
