[mythtv-users] Slave Backend Shutdown

Just recently added a slave backend to my system which works very well.

Uses a Rasberry Pi to host a Hauppauge Dual HD USB tuner.

Has anybody got a way to shut the slave down after the last recording of 
the day?

I use the Idle Screen <https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Idle_Screen> on the 
master frontend to shut it down after recordings have finished and the 
front end is no longer in use. The slave backend seems to act like a 
remote frontend in that it keeps the system going until it is shut down 

This behaviour is not fully consistent, sometimes it does not keep the 
master awake but ignoring that I am looking for a method of 
automatically shutting it down.

I thought a possible solution would be to invoke slave shutdown using 
SSH from the master as part of its shutdown routine but that will not 
work as the slave is keeping the master alive.
