[mythtv-users] Multiple frontends on the same machine

In summary then.

I cannot share the same configuration between multiple frontends. But if 
I was to create two startup scripts:

------------------------------------------------------------------
export MYTHCONFDIR=~/mythTV/livingRoom
export DISPLAY=:0.0
mythfrontend
------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------
export MYTHCONFDIR=~/mythTV/masterBedRoom
export DISPLAY=:1.0
mythfrontend
------------------------------------------------------------------

I would be able to run two frontends on the same physical machine under the
same user with each frontend having their own configuration.

The two configurations would be very similar and may in fact differ only in the
specification of the port to listen on for network control directives.

================================================================
Is there anything on the development plan to allow a frontend to "inherit" a default
configuration and then override some specific attributes?

================================================================
I have seen a reference on another thread to command line options to a frontend
but cannot find any details on those option. Could somebody direct me to the
appropriate URL.

Thanks
