[mythtv-users] remote frontend on a Mac

Hi,

how do you set up a remote frontend on a Mac? I tried, but:


1.) it's unusably slow

2.) apparently, it uses at least part of the settings for a frontend
on one computer on another one as well

3.) it produces error messages about failed communication with the
backend

4.) it is unknown which access rights to the database the remote
frontend needs

5.) the remote frontend tries to update the database and fails

6.) it's not possible to watch recordings

7.) the recordings of one user are available to the remote frontend
and thus to another user


I expected it would be possible for a user at the remote frontend to
use his own settings and make his own recordings and watch them at his
frontend, independent of other users at other frontends (as far as
hardware limitations of the TV card allow), with an option to share
recordings between users if they want to. If that isn't possible,
what's the point?
