A friend of mine who uses MythTV IIRC had 2 backends, one of which is  
off most of the time, and the master backend uses WoL to wake up the  
slave when it needs to record something and when it finishes, it  
completely powers down.  Seems effective, though WoL can be hit or  
miss, though hit more often than miss.

Just my 2 cents...
