I presume by master/slave you mean mythbackend/mythfrontend? I think
master/slave refers to something else in MythTV (possibly having multiple
backends?). If so, see my answers below.

Put it in the backend so it can record once and have the recordings viewed
by multiple frontends. That also means that you can leave the backtend
running & recording shows 24x7 somewhere where fan noise isn't an issue and
only turn on your frontend when you want to do somew viewing.

I have attached my MythTV box directly to the TV by connecting the line out
from the sound card to the RCA inputs of the TV. It works fine (though I'll
probably end up putting it through my AV Receiver for better quality - just
haven't done it yet).
