[mythtv-users] Way to force --generate-preview to master backend only?

Is there a way to make the 'mythbackend --generate-preview' thing happen 
only on the master backend server?

I have some slave backends close to where the video feeds enter the 
building, all of them are little machines that do nothing but capture 
the video and save it on a server.   Sometimes shows have bad reception 
or whatever and I notice after some time over a dozen 'mythbackend 
--generate-preview' processes just sitting around doing nothing 
forever.   Anyhow that is network traffic I don't need even if they 
weren't zombie processes that eventually crash the backend.
