Am I right to assume your database is on the rpi?
The database does not have to be on the machine running the
master backend, but it MUST be up and running to use mythtv.
So, if the db is on the rpi and you want to take the rpi out of
commission, you will have to move the database and change the settings
on all back and frontends accordingly.
