[mythtv-users] Backend Setup with Dual Network Interface ??

   I am setting up a new Backend server which has two NIC cards.

   I was planning to use one connection for Myth traffic only, the other for 
other stuff (mail, http,etc).

   So I have configured DNS
           GeneralHost ->
           MythHost ->
   That is all working fine.

   At the moment the server hostname is actually set to "GeneralHost"

    My concern is I have read somewhere that mythbackend uses the hostname 
when saving shows in the database.   Is this correct?   If so I presume the 
effect would be to direct frontends to look for shows on the "GeneralHost" 

    I guess the obvious solution is to change the server host name to 
"MythHost", but will that break anythig else?

    Many thanks for any help,
