You're working under the same incorrect assumption that I held until a
few months ago, that the database has to run on the same machine as
the master backend. The database can reside anywhere, whether a master
backend, slave backend, a frontend-only box, or a box that is not
otherwise used for MythTV at all.

Frontend/backend:	P4 3.0GHz, 1.5TB software RAID 5 array
Slave backend:		Quad-core Xeon 1.6GHz, 6.6TB sw RAID 6
Video inputs:		Four high-definition over FireWire/OTA
Accessories:		47" 1080p LCD, 5.1 digital, and MX-600
