OTOH, doing a remote dump only requires the same network
access that MythTV itself does. You don't have to setup
anything extra. You don't worry about how you are going to
get the other exact copy to the separate machine.

For this application, locking the database more than once is
a relatively minor issue. It's a very small, low transaction
volume database.
