You don't need to try to set up a slave backend. You can use
mythjobqueue instead. First run mythtv-setup to configure what kinds
of jobs the machine can do (e.g. commflagging) and how many
simultaneous jobs it can handle. Then arrange for mythjobqueue to
always be running, such as starting it at boot time. The content can
be delivered by the myth network stream, so no NFS mounting is needed.
