What if my BE is in New York and properly configured and my FE is in
Seattle and properly configured?  Does Mythtv consider that incorrectly

Don't discount it.  I used to work for a telco that (more than 7 years
ago, and the time reference is just to speculate that it's probably an
order of magnitude or more greater now) used to sell 10Mb/s "ethernet"
across the province (hundreds if not a thousand or more KM, so the idea
of a few more hundred KMs into a different timezone are not outlandish).
