[mythtv-users] Live TV on Master using Slave backed card?

I'm having the same problem. Got a master backend with 2 DVB-T tuners, 1 
combined frontend/slave backend with a PVR-350 linked to my Sky 
satellite system and a standalone frontend elsewhere.

The combined frontend/backend NFS mounts the storage from the backend. 
This can watch LiveTv with any of the 3 tuners.  The standalone frontend 
also NFS mounts the storage from the backend, but can only watch using 
either of the DVB-T tuners in the master backend. If I try and change to 
the PVR-350 input, it just times out.

If I start recording using the PVR-350 backend, I can watch that 
recording on the standalone frontend.

Would appreciate any suggestions on where to start debugging this.
