I can see no reason why this shouldn't work. As far as I know, all of the
myth programs use standard MySQL accesses, no funky backdoors, so just point
your mythtv setup at the correct MySQL server (the same as you would on a
slave-only backend, etc) and make sure your database permissions are correct.
Of course, doing this will mean yet another machine that can cause your myth
setup not to work. :) I've considered moving my myth database onto my main
database server too, but I haven't done it. My mythweb is on a separate
central machine though. :)
