I have never moved my mythtv backend around like you are wanting to do, but
I do use it for OTA stations.
I bet the previous advice on setting up a new video source each time you
settle in a particular area would work.
I don't know how much work is involved in setting up your schedules direct
subscription for a distinct set of channels in each location, but I just
use the very limited schedules provided OTA. That provides show titles and
descriptions, but generally not episode titles or season or episode
numbers, but *should* work wherever you get OTA signals. It only provides
12-24 hours worth of info ahead, but that may be all you need if you're
only going to spend a day or two in one place anyway.
Let us know how it goes and what tips work for you as you move about.
