You want a new switch tied to a Live TV or Playback startup, which would 
start a User Job... which would send a telnet command to the slave FE, 
to start playing the same program...That likely would not synch exactly, 
but as you note, a second off is probably fine...

Heck, we already watch LiveTV with a 4-5 second delay from 'real' time!
