Got a master backend with 2 DVB-T tuners, 1
combined frontend/slave backend with a PVR-350 linked to my Sky
satellite system and a standalone frontend elsewhere.

The combined frontend/backend NFS mounts the storage from the backend.

If I start recording using the PVR-350 backend, I can watch that
recording on the standalone frontend.

Turns out that the backend IP address was not set correctly on the slave 
backend (it was still pointing at
