Or one simple script;
Set your "Slave Backend Wake Command" to a script, lets call it mywake.sh.
Mywake.sh pings the slave backend, if ping is successful, restart
mythbackend via ssh, if unsuccessful use WOL to wake the slave backend.
You would need to configure ssh login without password, and sudo
privileges on slave to restart mythtv-backend process.
