Oh, and I'll say this actually applies to all of the mythfilldatabase 
settings.  You can configure mythfilldatabase using mythtv-setup on any 
host on your network--you don't have to run it on the master backend 
(nor on any backend host).  All it takes is installing mythtv-setup on a 
system, which (along with mythbackend) is probably on the order of a 
couple 10s of megabytes of hard drive space, max.
