[mythtv-users] Sync 2 remote backends over VPN

In theory you could setup a user job to run at the end of a recording, have the user job run nuvexport and use the "nuv and sql" option to export the video and SQL to directory.  Use rsync to synchronize the files, then some kind of cron job or something on destination to scan the directory and move the files to the storage directory on the other box and import the SQL program information.  Would think something like that would work in theory at it would preserve the database info, and should be portable across different mythtv versions without doing a sql hack of your own.

  Hey all,  this probably isn't as technical as the cat thread...but here is my goal. 

  I have a myth setup (that rocks) and I've recently set my brother up with one as well. 

  I have an ip-cop secure VPN tunnel between our two houses so I can access all his resources with lan ip's securely and visa-versa.

  Now, how would I sync both servers so that it shows identical "recorded programs" so basically they are mirrored in some respects. I know its not possible to mirror them in real-time because of network speed. My thoughts are some sort of user-job that runs at night and syncs that days recorded content. Some sort of import/export script. 

  Has anyone ventured down this road or have links to like information?
