I 'promoted' my slave BE to master BE by just running mythtv-setup on the
slave BE and telling it that it was the 'master'. I shutdown the original
'master' BE
first and I shutdown te FE. When I restarted the new 'master' BE it came up
just fine.

I used the same PATH for my recordings. My recordings are NFS mounted
on all of my boxes and I use the same NFS path for everything.
