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.
