I haven't had any tuners in my master backend for more than 7 years, so
it should work fine. In fact, when I still had cable, I was using WoL to
start up the slave backends with the tuners only when a recording was
being done (to save power). Worked fine.

Now my ATSC tuner is in another machine that is always on, but it is
still just a slave.

I always used 'master backend override' to avoid problems when the slave
machine is not available.
