Thanks. I somewhat thought that the settings in mythwelcome -s was
propagated into the mysql database and was only meant for the master
backend only. I understand that it is not so, as one might want to
shut down individual FE as well. Now I have configurered the BE

OK, I might consider to do the same, once I got the other stuff
working - thanks.

I'm still confused. I thought it would be possible to have the FE to
be on at all times, staying in the mythwelcome screen. That is what I
want - my girlfriend should be able to press "Start Frontend" from the
remote, wait a couple of minutes for the BE to start, and then watch

I still have the problem that the FE will try to wake the BE
immediately after the BE shuts down. How can I avoid that?
