Here's what happens, the first time I logged into myweb it said:
Encoder 5 is remote on mythhd.home.loc (currently not connected).
I thought I might have turned off the mythbackend service on the slave, so i
turned it on, now it says:
Encoder 5 is remote on mythhd.home.loc and is not recording.
However as soon as I refresh the mythweb status screen I get:
"Mainserver: HandleRemoteEncoder(cmd (GET_STATE) Unknown encoder: 5,
on the slave backend log.
Obviously I have something setup wrong?
