Hmmm. Must admit that this is similar to my thoughts on a slightly odd
frontend/backend configuration. I'm curious why you can't run MythWeb on your
24x7 server though. I undestood the web pages and db updates are served by
apache/php/mysql. Why does the backend need to running?
If the backend does have to be running, could you possibly turn the
frontend/backend in the frontroom into a slave, then run a master backend on
the 24x7 server without any local tuners?
