Thanks Bill and Mike. I'll have a go using MYTHCONFDIR.
*Very* occasionally, I sometimes used to run *three* mythfrontends on
same PC and same logged in user! One was playing a (usually audio-only)
program, and two housekeeping - one looking in upcoming recordings and
comparing with currently recorded or previously recorded stuff. It was
useful being able to quickly alt-tab between the last two sessions. I
can see that I would have to have a third configuration directory if I
wanted to do that.
Given that I don't use UPNP, is it not possible to simply disable it, or
disable the Media Renderer bit, on the frontend? Then I could use one
config file for all the frontends without worrying about clashes.
