[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.
