I have thought about doing this but I run an ASA for a firewall and it does
not have a DNS client.

I dont have a NAS for diskless.  All the storage is local.  So diskless
boots off the backend and the backend boots off diskless.

I really do not want the diskless machine to wake the backend when I turn it
on.  This would make the frontend take a lot longer to start as it would
have to boot the server, wait...then boot itself.

Any one have  script that i could modify that would use mythtv shutdown
cmd's that would do the if statement above?
