[mythtv-users] Downgrading Master to Slave

I've built a new kick-ass server that I want to make my new MythTV master 
backend. I'm not sure what the steps are for downgrading my existing Master 
Backend&Frontend box to be a slave.

In this process I'd like to move the MySQL database from the current host to 
the new server.

I've got the new server successfully running mythbackend and MySQL with a new 
HD tuner.

I've seen the notes at:
but I don't want to move to new hardware. I want to keep the existing SD 
tuners and storage and slave them to the new server without losing all the 
existing recordings.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
