    different playback settings on remote frontend

    This one I wasn't expecting.
    I have an acer revo that can utilise VDPAU on it nvidia card. but I use a combined frontend/backend that doesn't have this capability.
    I was surprised to see that the settings on the remote frontend, have been implemented on the combined frontend/backend.
    Is there a way of keeping these playback setting separate?

    They should be separate.

    Don't suppose these two have the same hostname? Stuff like this is all stored in the mysql database under the hostname.

    I hadn't appreciated quite how useful this was until I re-installed my remote FE, and all my settings were still there, because I kept the same name.

    Go to Setup->General->Next->Database Configuration (2/2)

    Check the box 'Custom Identifier for Frontend Preference', and a text box will appear. Enter the name you wish to use for the front end.

    I found it easier to do this on both of my Front Ends, not just the one that's only a front end.
