[mythtv-users] Slave Backend - making recordings available on Master

I have a working system with a Master & Slave Backend. All recordings go 
to a shared folder on the Master. With Master Backend Override set the 
recordings produced by the slave are directly accessible by the master. 
However Leanfrontend fetches them from the slave doubling the network 

There is a very old thread which describes how to deal with slave 
recordings when the device is retired it recommends:-

Update your database to tell mythbackend that a new host now owns the
recordings from the to-be-retired backend host:

mysql -umythtv -p mythconverg -e "UPDATE recorded SET hostname =
'new_hostname' WHERE hostname = 'old_hostname';"

Does any body know if this is still valid?

If so I could run it daily to convert slave recordings.
