Advanced setup

This will describe how I setup my system at home with adcanced settings.

Secondary Backend.

Creating a secondary Backend can provide many both improvements and difficulties. But it’ll create a more flexible system for many users – using Loadbalacing between the backends. Mainly the backend are installed as the MasterBackend and afterwards its needing these settings. I’m using a intel NUC here as Secondary Backend with USB Tuner. But in my setup – I’ll use the MasterBackend as stotage for recordings.

apt-get install nfs-kernel-server
mkdir /storage

Add a line to /etc/fstab for mounting the storage at boottime

# mounting NFS Share from MainCore /storage nfs auto,nofail,noatime,nolock 0 0

reboot and verify that the mount are succeded at boottime.Now we are ready to startup MythTV Secondary Backend server and connect it to MythTV. so log in as root and run from console:


Remember this is a Secondary backend – so it’ll connect to Master Backend MySQL Server and report it self as a slave Backend.  Setup the local Tuners – along with the storage groups etc. exit the setup and start Mythbackend! Now you will see your secondary backend tuners in the Mythtv status page – like this:

 Look which tuners are local and remote !
