That's how mine is set up.  The slave is also a secondary frontend, so  
I also power it up manually when I want to watch something on it.  The  
master runs all the time.

If you set up your tuners so the master backend's is preferred, the  
master will *always* be up when the slave needs to record something,  
anyway -- the slave will only be needed for recording if the master is  
already busy recording something else.
