[mythtv-users] Is there a good way to balance tuner use?

I a master backend and a slave backend, in addition to two HDHR Primes.
 Currently, I have one Prime's tuners on my Master frontend, and one on the
slave backend.  I have the tuner numbers staggered, such that the 1st
recording tuner is on my slave, the 2nd is on my master, 3rd is on the
slave, etc.  The LiveTV tuners are in reverse order.

What ends up happening now is the majority of shows record on my slave
backend this isn't a problem, *except* it causes my slave's recording
drives to fill much quicker than the master, which could end up
inadvertently auto-expiring shows.  I have three hard drives in each
machine - the master's drives have ~300G free on each, while the slave's
drives have ~100G free now, and shrinking.

What is the preferred method to set this up such that my hard drives are
used more equally across both machines?  Would it help to NFS mount the
master's drives on the slave machines and add those to the storage group?
