[mythtv-users] Mythtv FE in a frequent power loss environment

I would like to setup a front-end in an environment where power
failure are a norm. The plan is to have a UPS for the backend so that
it cleanly shutdown but the frontend will be on its own.

So is it ideal to go for a diskless frontend (nfs mounted backend)?
What happens when FE is alive and a power failure occurs, will it
corrupt the backend filesystem.

Also, i plan to use XFS for the backend. Is it a good choice with a
UPS which can cleanly shut it down or should i stick to ext3. I havent
still built the kit, so open for any tips!
