So your recommendation is to have a separate, perhaps dedicated backend server
and deploy several Ion machines as frontends. The backend should be packed
away to avoid the noise. How I control it is something I don't get right now.
The Ion machine is btw just a name I picked up from a local list here where
they claim that it just works. :-)
But it's rather disappointing that you need more than one tuner. I think I'll
follow Thomas' advice and join the local mythtv forum to learn more about what
MythTV really is.
