I am in the same boat, I have my backend setup to auto power down and
wake to record, but my kids turn on the (seperate) frontend, then turn
off the TV and go to school. :-(. As the frontend is up and running all
day means that the backend still has a client and doesnt turn off.
I thought mythshutdown and mythwelcome were aimed at backend machines,
not front-ends ?
Is there an equivelent of mythshutdown for a frontend only box ? Or am I
misisng the point and mythshutdown works on frontends anyway :-)
