                  <div>Jim, out of curiosity, why do you want to setup a
                    slave backend? Why not just configure the HDHR on
                    your main mythtv server?</div>

            <div>I could do it that way, but then my poor RPi4 would
              have nothing to do and would be upset with me 😁 </div>
            <div><br>
            </div>
            <div>It's mostly a learning experience about multiple
              backends.  I've never done it. SInce I'm retired, in a
              Covid-19 lockdown, and the heat index outside is over 100
              degrees, I need something to work on. I have 4 RPis, and a
              closet of old PCs.  I'm just trying to stay busy.  I even
              put Archlinux on one just to try it.</div>

      <p>While you are about it, check if leanfront can play recordings
        from the slave backend. I did do some minimal testing of that.
        Also playback videos on the slave backend. I never tested that.
        I am not even sure if you can have videos on a slave backend.<br>
      </p>
      <p>Let me know if there are any problems I should fix.<br>

    <p>So on Videos, here's what I did. I added the /srv/mythtv/videos
      to my Videos Storage group on the master and it doesn't exist on
      Master, only on the slave.  I then copied a m4a video file to that
      directory on the slave.</p>
    <p>With Leanfront I had a directory folder with no name and it had a
      collection of videos that use to say "test videos" but now had all
      the videos from "test videos" plus the video from my slave.  They
      all played but it seems there maybe a folder naming issue.</p>
    <p>So it didn't take a few days to get this tested. Just shows what
      a bourbon on the rocks and half a bottle of wine can do. :-)</p>
