If the slave has been automatically shutdown by the master because it 
was idle, the master assumes the slave can be brought up just the same 
using WOL.  The slave's tuners are still available for scheduling, and 
everything behaves as if it were still connected.  If the slave was 
shutdown manually, the backend considers those tuners will not be 
available for any upcoming recordings.
