Hang on - from this, and a few other things, it sounds like when you
say "remote" frontend, you mean "really remote" - like, another
household entirely. That's not a situation Myth is designed to deal
with. Typical recordings are too high bitrate to stream over the
internet, and Myth isn't set up to allow for security. It's a
household PVR, not a Video-on-Demand server.
