[mythtv-users] Fixes and Trunk on same network

Hi all,

I'd like to give Trunk a tryout, I have a spare box with DVBS2  sat  
card and VDPAUesque graphics. Trouble is last time I tried having two  
MythTV systems on the same network it got very messy, I built a second  
system to demo at a local computer club and ended up trashing my  
channel lineup and a lot of recording metadata! MythTV uPnP decided it  
knew better than me which backend I should be configuring, took me a  
while to realise why I was having problems by which time I was having  
to restore from backups and never really got things back where they  

I understand it's less trouble if uPnP is turned off but I use uPnP  
all the time as my only frontend is a PS3 so apart from temporary  
shutdowns I can't run without it. Of course I need uPnP too with the  
Trunk system once it's built, one of the things I want to look at is  
the current state of uPnP working with the PS3.

My current Fixes system is relied on right now, I don't have any other  
source of television so I'm looking for some pointers so I don't trash  
my smoothly running current system (again) while I play.
