I have a similar setup, although more complicated. I moved DHCP and DNS to a Linux install on my router (DD-WRT actually) and have the frontends wake the backend up when they start. That way the backend can be off except for when it's recording. 

Configuring the frontends was a bit of a pain but not too bad. You still need a server somewhere to feed them boot images, but that's done by a (3rd) machine that's on all the time anyway.
