On the BE/FE machine,
in Mythbuntu Control Centre, under the MySQL tab, enable Master Backend Role
in MYTHTV Backend Setup/ General, ensure both IP's are the same and the port is 6543 and the status port is 6544, also note the pin number
The IP address must be the same as the Machine, so use a static IP.
I was unable to make Network Manager do this, so it is done manually,
edit /etc/network/interfaces to look something like this
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
gateway 192.168.1.??? (whatever your routers address)
if you leave resolv.conf there will be no internet and no updates.
# Generated by NetworkManager
nameserver 192.168.1.??? (whatever your routers address)
In the FE on the BE in settings/General make a note of the data base name, username and the password
On the new remote Frontend
On startup it will go looking for the uPnP and when found, May? ask for the username and password of your BE
I also use a static IP here, just to stop things moving about, very bad calmer when trying to VNC to a remote frontend.
Any Music or Video Folders will have to shared and mounted outside of Myth, either SMB or NFS, your choice. Then point the remote frontend to said Folders in mythmusic and or Videos.
HD does not Stream well over even on a 1Gb network. But LiveTV, music, videos and recorded TV works well.
For a LiveCD, the versions of MythTV must be the same, there is another Thread on this subject on here.
