[mythtv-users] Help with Slave Setup

Hey All,

I am working on setting up a slave system to capture HD content via firewire
from a SA3250 STB.  Here is my setup:

Master - PVR250
Slave - laptop capturing HD over firewire.  Can only capture HD channels
that are not encrypted.  (no analog or encrypted HD).

I have been able to setup the slave to talk to the backend and the fw
capture shows up as a remote encoder on the backend.  I can schedule
recordings from the frontend on that input and it will record.  However, I
would like to be able to hit the "v" key on my frontend and have it swap to
the fw hd input on the slave. Righht now hitting 'V' on a frontend results
in a lot of time out messages, I assume because the fw input is trying to
tune to a non hd channel.   I would also like to bind only the HD channels
to the slave since I am capturing via firwire and any non hd content or
encrypted does not display (dont kow if this is possible).
