Does MythTV record live TV when no front end is connected?

Is MythTV like that? Or does it stop recording live TV when no front ends are connected?

For daily backups I think I'll put the mysql directory in its own partition and use LVM snapshots and rsync to make a point-in-time backup.

That's in addition to running the normal backup script once or twice a week when I know it's not recording.

Thanks. Am I correct to assume the backup script described in the wiki can create a useable backup while recordings are going on (with the exception of possibly missing some details of the active recordings)?

Playing recordings if the database is corrupted and rebuilt?

I'm trying to move away from Windows Media Center, and have spent many hours reading about the features and limitations of MythTV, TVHeadend and MediaPortal as a replacement DVR solution. At this point MythTV is my top choice, but I still have more to learn about it and the other two before deciding...
