because I do not want to have one box running only for the database.
my current mythbox is handles everything, but it does not have free
slots for the other tv cards. 2nd backend/frontend would have similar
hardware, and I see no reason to have two boxes running for the things
which can be easily done by one box. this probably cannot be done
easily or maybe not at all, but it would nice and useful and an energy
saving solution.
