[mythtv-users] Master/Slave Backend Conf Q

Input connection, yes on both backends

Video Source, no on slave backend.

Configuration of a non-master backend follows the same general procedure
as that of the master backend, with the exception that you skip over the
"Video Sources" step. All possible video sources need to be defined on
the master backend system; only the master backend will query a listings
provider to obtain guide data for all the non-master backends.

Is the above correct? Does anyone have it working?
