[mythtv-users] Converting master backend to slave backend

I've been running myth for over 2+ years. Now I've added another PC and
installed mythtv on it. I want to make this new PC as the master backend and
the older PC as slave backend.

The (would be) slave backend has lots of data about recorded shows etc for
over 2+ years. I think its valuable enough so that I don't accidentally
rerecord programs. It has two HDTV tuner cards installed. In the new master
backend, I'm planning to another PVR250 capture card to connect to dish
receiver. The master backend will be running 24x7.

I read in the faq and there is a section to migrate myth database from one
PC to another PC. Can I do same thing in my case and migrate my older master
backend database to the new backend and configure the master's IP address in
the slave backend.

What other gotchas I need to watch for ?

Thanks in advance
