[mythtv-users] Where do slave BE's store their recordings?

I don't implement any sleeping/waking power-saving features, but I can
say that all of my SBEs store recordings on their local drives and
stream directly to whatever frontend is connected to it.
The disadvantage to my setup is that if you fill-up SBE1 and still have
space on SBE2, but your recording priorities put SBE1 as the first
choice, then it will start expiring recordings on SBE1 even though you
have space on SBE2.
I have 1 MBE-only and 5 SBE/FEs (and that's still not enough to cover
all the TVs in my house... :D)

Sorry for yet another email!
I am thinking of sharing the load of my BE over two PC's, each being a
dedicated BE device.
I am planning on the master BE having all the storage, however, I am
not sure this is physically possible.
On a normal setup, where the slave BE is powered down when not in use
(if that is a normal setup), where would the slave store its
If a recording was stored on the slave BE and a FE wanted to view it,
would the slave get woken to start streaming the recording?
Does all data flow through the master BE?
Is there a good resource of information for slave BE setups? I looked
on the wiki, but it seems a little bare on the basic info, which is
what I am after.
