[mythtv-users] slave backend using NFS for ringbuf

I just set up a slave backend, and I use NFS to mount the myth shares from the master backend. This means that the slave uses the NFS share for it's ringbuffer.
Is this a good thing to do? Is there a way around this without throwing massive hard drives into the slave?
The reason I'm asking is my frontend keeps getting errors:

2008-01-24 10:46:48.971 NVP: Prebuffer wait timed out 10 times.
This happens only when displaying livetv from the slave backend.
On another note, is there a way I can make a frontend prefer a specific backend?
