Did a stock auto install of R5F27 and had to do a few edits to make it a slave only machine. See this wiki page for more info (I did not to the exports or NFS steps): ... ckendHowTo

Note: My master IP address is and the Slave is

From a command line as root:

update-rc.d -f mysql remove
update-rc.d -f apache remove
rm -fr /etc/cron.daily/mythtv-backend

nano /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt


Open Xterm:

su mythtv-setup
In mythtv-setup:
set local ip (default to
set master backend ip to
setup capture cards

See the Kworld 115 wiki page for how to set it up: ... ld115HowTo

After that I rebooted both the master and slave machines (Slave first and then Master). Now I have 6 tuners between two Mythtv machines. :)

Just as a note, all the hardware except the Kworld 115 could be considered Tier 1 if I did not do the slave backend steps.
