Configuring a remote front-end is relatively easy. There are only a few steps you need to take on your back-end machine.
1. On the machine you're running mysql (typically the same machine
as your MythTV master backend server), you need to allow mysql
connections from other hosts on your network. This example assumes your
local area network is 10.0.1.0/255.255.255.0, adjust accordingly for
$ mysql -u root -p mythconverg
mysql> grant all on mythconverg.* to mythtv@"10.0.1.%" identified by "mythtv";
mysql> flush privileges;
2. In the mythtvsetup application on your back-end, you'll need to
make sure you set the variables for "IP address for <host>" and
"Master Server IP address" to the IP address of the back-end's network
card, rather than the loopback address (127.0.0.1).
3. On your remote systems, you'll need to edit one or more files. If
your remote system is a remote frontend only, open up
~/.mythtv/mysql.txt, and change the DBHostName variable from localhost
to the IP or host name of your back-end server (the one you just set in
the previous step). If your remote system is a slave backend (i.e., it
has a tuner card you want to use with MythTV), you'll need to make the
same changes to /.mythtv/mysql.txt and /root/.mythtv/mysql.txt.
4. In the mythtvsetup application on your front-end, you'll need to
make sure you set the variable for "Master Server IP address" to the IP
address of the machine you just set in your mysql.txt file.
These are the primary changes that differentiate a setup with a
remote front-end, but you'll also have to go through the bulk of the
rest of the steps detailed here to get things working. A few of the
packages installed throughout this guide aren't necessary for a
front-end only system, but it won't hurt anything to install them
anyway, so I'm not going to go into what they are.I grabbed this off Jarod's Fedora Mythtv site.Mitchell
