Yes. It looks through all paths defined for that storage group on all

The backend will record to any storage group defined locally, or on the
master backend. Assuming your master backend is already using its own
tuners and disks, which is why it spilled over to the slave, there is
good chance that the disk scheduler will not reuse those disks because
of existing IO load.

built in web server, the same mechanism used for upnp clients, streaming
to the master backend can only be performed using the backend network
protocol. Thinking a simple BASH script could be capable of that is
wishful indeed. Now it could be written by the clinically insane, like
the IRC client that interfaces with /dev/tcp for network communications,
but most sane programmers realize at some point that a shell batch
language is insufficient for their needs, and switch to a real
